    Power Settings Ignored by Lenovo Yoga 400 laptop

    • Did you make any changes to your computer? I dont know.. what kind of changes are you talking about. I only added software.. like Norton Security and a few free MSFT apps.
    • Which Build are you currently in? I dont know..probably the latest one. How do i determine "the build"?? I always update windows and pretty sure this is up to date here.
    • Which troubleshooting steps did you try? Tried everything that was suggested,..power troubleshooter, update graphics card, set power settings to default, and other things.. nothing worked. Has been a problem for many months.
      How do i do this clean boot? I will need instructions for these things..step by step. i am tired of this machine ignoring the power settings. Need this fixed.

    Hi,

    To better assist you regarding your concern, have you tried running the Power troubleshooter? Power troubleshooter is used when you are having issues with the power settings of your computer. It will automatically troubleshoot Windows power plans and attempt
    to resolve your concern. To do so, kindly follow the steps below:

    • Press Windows key + X
    • Click Control Panel
    • Click View all
    • Click Power
    • Click Next

    By then, it will now start the troubleshooting.

    Let us know how it goes.
