    Unable to Windows OS 10 Update my Surface Pro 4, "Battery Saver is on" error even though plugged in and NOT in Battery Saver mode

    • Trying to perform Windows Update for Windows 10 OS as recommended.
    • Get error message that "Battery Saver is turned on, so we've paused downloads."
    • This is a Surface Pro 4, plugged in. So it won't go into Battery Saver mode while plugged in. Battery Saver is indeed "off" as demonstrated in Settings and in the Right hand side "Charms" icon.
    • I restarted the Surface several times but still having the same error.

    How to turn on the battery saver while plugged in on Windows 11?

    Cannot turn on Battery Saver

    I have installed windows 10 for about half a year, had run a number of updates, etc.

    In the past couple of months I get a pop-up message that my battery is charged above xx% and that is reducing the battery life.

    That happens when I plug in the laptop for say 2-3 hours, as the battery charges towards 100%.

    Previously, I had a setting that the battery charge limit was set to about 66 or 80%, and that was suppose to extend battery life.

    I cannot find where the setting for the charging limit on my settings anymore.

    The battery charges to 100% when plugged in.

    In addition, I cannot turn on the "Off/On" button under

    "Settings/System Display, notifications, apps, power/Battery saver/ Battery saver is currently:"

    as the button is always off, and cannot be turned on.

    I tried various solutions found on various websites, but that button is always off.

    In fact, the whole field ("Battery saver is currently: <button> Off") is grayed out as inactive.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    Dorin
