    If I'm not mistaken charge thresholds are actually stored in the battery itself. If you set them under Win 7 and upgrade to Win 8, your limits still remain because the battery has stayed the same.

    If you install the Power-Manager and if you install then the "Lenovo Settings Dependency Package", Power Manager gets updated from version 6 to version 7.11:

    No, there are no differences at all which you can see. Maybe the version 7 is better compatible to Windows 8.

    hi, I installed Win8 Pro on top of my Win7 installation, I can't run Power manager, it just gets stuck...

    most of the time I do a clean install and I've been worried about my Win8 installation, did any of you did a clean install? what software did you install to get everything working? (fingerprint reader? any other Lenovo software?)

    I'd appreciate your help =)
