        • System Update does report available driver updates

          I have repeatedly tried to use the "system update" function of the Lenovo Companion tool. I have received some software updates this way, but it doesn't seem to report newer drivers -- even when several are published on the Lenovo support site when I check there. I was hoping that System Update would automate driver updates, but it hasn't for me.

            If I get one more "promotion" in the Notifications, I *will* uninstall this piece of junk. I am NOT interested in getting blasted with your "monthly giveaways" or any other advertising, it is utterly annoying.

              • System Update needs tgo provide an error code when it fails to work.

                My System Update recently stopped installing updates. It will inform me what updates are available, and allow me to sewlect them for installation. They download and System Update immediately issues the message the updates failed to install. No reason, no error code.

                I tried uninstalling System Update and reinstalling it. Same problem.

                The suggested solution has been to reset my system to factory defaults and reinstall all my applications and data. This once difficult process has gotten even more difficult since Microsoft remove Easy Transfer. Offloading all my data, and making certain I've gotten all it, has just become more…

                  Hi everyone,

                  I am aware of the issues that everyone has been having. We are releasing a large update around 1/27 for the Companion application and the system interface driver that will hopefully resolve the last of these issues.

                  Please stay tuned and make sure you get these updates near the end of the month.

                  Thanks,
                  James

                • Flexible maximum battery percentage setting in conservation mode

                  The conservation mode in power section of lenovo companion, the user should have the option to set the maximum percentage up to which he can charge his laptop. I personally want to set the value to 75-80% but the software provides no option.
                  A researches proofs that keeping battery percentage between 45% to 75% reduces the battery efficiency by only 10% after 7000 charge cycle while keeping the battery percentage between 25-100% reduces efficiency by 25% after 5000 charge cycles.
                  I love the conservation mode option provided by lenovo, but can you please help me custom set the maximum battery…

                    • The battery charge thresholds are still not working correctly. It has gone from intermittent to never.

                      The battery threshold settings have stopped working again on my Thinkpad P50. The settings can be entered and are accepted, but the settings are ignored and the charge continues to 100%. This function has been intermittent for the past 12 months, but the function now doesn't work at all.

                          The first entry in the navigation, the one with the house/building symbol, is labeled "Pos1" in the german translation (probably "Home" in english). A label like "Übersicht" (i.e. overview), or "Startseite" (i.e. start screen) would fit better.

                                • Battery charging thresholds

                                  Battery Charge Threshold bug - charges past threshold. Windows 10, Lenovo YOGA 70014ISK. It's working randomly. Most of the time it will respect the threshold. But then randomly I will see it charging all the way up. The hardware settings and power section are sometimes displayed and sometimes not. The same situation with the battery charging thresholds button. It does not matter if the button is turned on because when I close the Companion and then open the button is still turned off.

                                      • Please improve the battery settings in Lenovo Companion app!

                                        Hello! I'm using Lenovo Companion version 4.5.3.0 on ThinkPad Yoga X1 (1st Gen/Skylake) & ThinkPad Yoga P40, both running Windows 10 Pro version 1709 aka the Fall Creators Update.

                                        1) The current implementation (after merging two apps) seems to be limited in terms of (at least) battery settings. I can no longer see my battery's cycle count, while previously Lenovo Settings had this nice expandable window with the capacity, voltage and other useful data.

                                        2) An old issue has returned on ThinkPad Yoga X1 - the power LED is constantly "on", even when no charging is happening (with charging thresholds…

                                          Hey Sielwode,

                                          Thanks for the detailed feedback. On #1 and #3, there will be a fixed pushed out on 12/8 that will fix this issue for you so please be patient for that. Sorry that the bugs escaped our first combined release.

                                          On #2, I want to say that will also be fixed with the 12/8 release but I need to double check with the hardware team.

                                        • battery will only be charge to 90%

                                          can i get the battery will only be charged to 90%?
