lenovo flex 2-14 Airplane mode button is not working and battery reset in energy manager not working

Question: lenovo flex 2-14 Airplane mode button is not working and battery reset in energy manager not working

the Airplane button on the keyboard has not been working since update to windows 10 and the energy manager software which came in win 8.1 version 1.5.0.20 is unable to gauge reset ( calibrate the battery). i recently noticed lenovo released energy manager and airplane mode fix for other laptops http://support.lenovo.com/in/en/downloads/ds103640 like flex 3, should i install this update will this solve the problem. Battery is in dire need of calibration.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Answer:Y50-70 - Battery Guage,Energy Manager, Lenovo Utility & others not working in win 10

I had this problem as well with my Y50-70, the Windows 10 files would appear to install without issue, but then not function. In the end, I downloaded the installer for 64bit WIndows 8.1 and ran that on my Windows 10 installation. So far, the Energy Manager app seems to work correctly without any obvious issues, and now all of the special keyboard function keys work properly as well, including volume, screen brightness, and Wifi Airplane Mode. I'm sure Lenovo may not recommend this as a proper solution. Keep in mind, your experience may not be the same as mine, so please don't try this unless you have a complete system backup available, or you're willing to possibly have things not function properly as a result. So far I'm content with the results, and I'll update this post if anything changes or if I start to see any abnormalities.

I've been using conservation mode for my new (1 month) lenovo laptop every time I put the AC adapter in it. I thought that this was going to help me endure my battery life, but in the end I've stacked with the fact, that battery's stamina went much more lower. For example, I could use my laptop in a battery economy mode/conservation turned off for 5-6 hours, now it barely lasts 3 hrs with the same settings and the same pattern of usage. Just for record, 21 minute of watching a film costs my battery from 10-20% now, while before it was not an issue at all, I hardly can tell that it drained me more than 5%. Also, right now, while typing this, I've noticed, that behaviour of my percentage bar is also really strange: first it shows 75%, then, after 5 minutes, it showes 73%, without getting through 74%. And as a one big plus to that, my battery status says that my battery is normal, just normal, while before it was great or something like that. I find it strange because it is 1 month old notebook, as I mentioned earlyer. Now I am trying to recalibrate my battery, for the 3d time, hoping it would help me, but I really wish to hear your opinion about that, maybe there is something that I don't know about, something that can help me. P.S. It is 70% now, gezus

Hi, I've just noticed that after upgrading from out-of-the-box Windows 8.1 to Windows 10, several of the 1st row hotkeys stopped working, including Volume up/down, Brightness up/down (this is by far  the most annoying one!!) and airplane mode. Don't know about what's on the F8,F9,F10 keys.Sometimes when I press Vol +/- or Bright +/- it will go one step up or down but will no more (if I keep pressing it does nothing), but have not figured out yet when it will work or not. Have anyone experienced this? How can I fix it? Thanks, Mauricio

Hi Folks - First Post. I have a Y50-70 and upgraded to the Windows 10 Anniversary Edition (Version 1607 Build 14393.51) and now the Energy Manager will not enable Conservation Mode. I can enable the mode but the battery still charges to 100% and I will get the message that the battery has been above 70% for a long time.

It is however annoying that the setting is in the far back settings in Energy Manager.
 
Is there any way to make a shortcut to it? A command line option for the executable would do the trick.

hi sourabh1407,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
Just to check, is the Utility.exe file enabled on startup (Task Manager > Startup Tab)? If not, try to enable it then reboot and observe.
 
If the problem remains, try to:
1. Uninstall the Lenovo Energy Management from the Control Panel (icon views) > Programs and Features then reboot.
2. Reinstall the Lenovo Energy Management from the D:\Drivers folder or from the link below:

Hi everyone. I recently installed Windows 7 64-bit on a new V310-15ISK which came with FreeDOS. I got all the drivers installed ok, everything seems to be working fine, except for a couple of quirks: 1. Airplane mode hotkey (F7) is not turning the wireless adapter on/off as it should. Instead I get a blank wireless status window which tells me to turn my wireless adapter on first (which it already is).2. Somewhere in Lenovo Energy Management it says it can't give further info about the battery because it's not an original Lenovo battery  (which is a lie). I had to try a few ACPI drivers for the hotkeys to work as there was none on the product support page. I settled on 4eem02ww.exe which is the most recent functional version I found on the web. Can anyone point me to a proper ACPI driver that lets Airplane mode enable/disable the wireless adapter (and displays all battery info)? Cheers.

Just purchased a U430. This is my first Lenovo and thus far, I am impressed. The first thing I did, after confirming that the computer works, was to install Windows 7 Pro x64. That process went smoothly and I was able to find and install all of the necessary drivers. However, there are two issues that are causing problems, one of which is that the F6 key (airplane mode) is not working. All other function keys are working as expected, e.g., F11 dims the screen. However, I cannot turn the radios (Bluetooth and WiFi) on or off. Both are currently on, but I would expect that there is a control that allows me to turn one, or both, on and/or off. I have downloaded and installed all of the driver files from the Lenovo site, but something is still missing. Would you please direct me to instructions for resolving this issue. Thank you.

Answer:G500s - energy manager not working in windows 10

hi pmscottsdale,
 
Welcome to the Forums.
 
You didn't mention the model of your lenovo unit but it seems like you have enabled Conservation Mode to limit the battery charge up to 60%.
 
If you did use Conservation Mode and you can't toggle it back so it'll fykky charge the battery then try the following:
1. Uninstall the Lenovo Energy Manager from the Control Panel > Programs and Features then reboot and observe if the battery is now charging pass 60%.
 
2. If same problem, shutdown the machine and leave the AC adapter plugged-for an hour or two and observe the battery charge via the light indicator.
 
- Sample image
 
 
 
Let me know if this works for you.

I did the upgrade but now I cannot use the FN+F5 key to turn Airplane mode on or off.  I know I can turn it on or off through the menu but I need to get the hotkeys to work.  I checked lenovo for updated drivers but I have the most recent synaptics software and it still does not work.  I am assuming it is this software that would handle this sort of thing. Also the annoying edge swipe in Windows 8 and 8.1 cannot be disabled now and the way I was able to disable it before was with the synaptics software in the settings there was a check box for "enable touch swipe" where if you swipe the touchpad from right to left starting at the right edge, the charms bar pops up.  Problem is random times my finger will make this happen unintentionally.  Weirdly the most recent version of synaptics was released Oct 13th 2013 and this is not an option to enable or disable it.  Strangley an older version I had installed on Win 8 prior had this option.  I will try installing an old version and update here.

With the new airplane tray icon, I find that after I resume from a hibernate the icon is not working all the time.

With some testing, I found that if I resumed from hibernate right away then the problem didn't always appear. But after being hibernated a few minutes or more, the problem has appeared every time.

If I turn off airplane mode using the notifications tray icon, the airplane tray icon remains in the tray. I can go to wifi and connect manually, but the airplane tray icon is still there. Hovering over it with the mouse pointer and it says wifi is not connected, even though it is.

In addition, once the airplane icon stops working so does the speaker icon. I can't get left or right mouse clicks to do anything. This behavior of the speaker icon started after the (November) update, which I just installed last week.

Only a restart or shutdown/start clears both these issues.

At first, the energy manager, which I only use to turn conservation mode on and off, worked fine, but yesterday it started freezing mostly when clicking the menu button (3 dots and lines) and if that worked it freezes when clicking the Settings tab. Freeze might not be the correct word, since the UI still partly works. Battery charging animation, etc. still work but button mouse over animation is not shown and user input (mouse click) has no effect.I tried ending and restarting the energy manager, restarting windows and I even reinstalled the energy manager. Reinstalling had at least some effect, it more often "survives" the menu button and freezes when clicking the settings tab.This is quite frustrating and I would really appreciate some help

I've been getting the following error each time I start my laptop.  I've tried clicking each option, and they all appear to do the same thing - close out the error window.  It doesn't appear again until after I shutdown and startup again.  I'm on Windows 10 and it sounds like Energy Manager generally has been an issue when upgrading to 10.  I'm trying to find the Energy Manager driver for Windows 10 for my particular laptop, the Flex 2-15, but I can't find it anywhere on the Lenovo site.  Can anyone else locate it?  Or have another solution to this issue?  Thanks!?

My operating system is windows 10 Pro.
After updating the bios my built in speaker and touch-pad three button not working. Can anyone give me suggestion that how to overcome this problem. 

Answer:Latitude 6430u Build in speaker not working and touch-pad button not working right button and bottom two button

Hello. Try re-installing the IDT audio driver.
Win10 is not supported by Dell on the Latitude 6430u so install the IDT 1.0.6491.0 driver using compatibility mode.
1. Download and save the audio driver to your desktop or any convenient location on the hard drive.  [There are two "formats" on the driver's page. Scroll down to the 2nd one, named "Hard Drive" format, and download that one, not the 1st one named "Windows Update Package".]2. Double click on the new folder to extract (unzip) the driver files.3. The extractor wizard will create a new folder for the driver files. It will be at "c:\dell\drivers\xxxxxx". Write down the exact location that the wizard creates. 4. If the driver begins to install automatically, halt (cancel) the installation.5. Browse to the driver files on the hard drive (the location you wrote down).6. Find the "setup.exe" file.7. Right click on setup.exe to open the context menu.8. Select the Properties.9. Select the Compatibility tab.10. Check the box "run this program in compatibility mode for"... Win7.
If the speakers still do not work, test them with the ePSA or the PSA audio test.
If the speakers pass the test and still do not work, try an earlier version of the BIOS. You can get links to all 11 versions of the BIOS here.  That page also has all the touchpad drivers.
If doing that does not work, perform a system recovery and return the laptop to the operating system that was ... Read more

Hi.  When I'm working on my Flex 3 on battery only, after about 20 minutes, the screen will "turn off."  I use quotations because the sreen turns black but it is back-lit.  Sound still works.  No buttons get me out of this frozen state and I have to hard restart the computer. Anybody else have this issue?  Computer is 1 month old. Thanks!

Answer:Flex 3 screen turns off when working on battery

I have exactly the same problem. Works fine when plugged in, but absolutely useless on battery, due to this random "black screen". My screen too is backlit, but the only way I have found to "wake-up" the screen is to reboot the computer. My Flex 3 came from Costco, and I am planning to return it.

Flex 2 battery indicator (white color) shows approximately 25%.  When plugged in to charge it indicates charging is working by showing the white bar moving up and down for 20 seconds, then it stops.  I also left it plugged in overnight but the indicator didn't change.  Any ideas?  I found where it shows I have 29% battery remaining but it won't go any higher or lower.  It says it's charging but nothing changes.

Hi all. So 2 days ago I was using the laptop for some course work, I then went asleep for maybe 2 hours and when I woke up I was unable to use the touchpad or kyboard. Now I had this issue before but it seemed to fix itself after a day or two. So far I have reset the computer while keeping all my own files, updated, deleted, reinstalled the drivers multiple times, removed the keypad to ensure the ribbon wasn't loose etc etc. I have since been able to get the touchpad to work by messing with the drivers but the keyboard remains the same. I oticed I am able to use it when either the laptop is held at an angle or if the screen if opened up almost flat. I'm guessing this is a driver issue but I can't for the life of me figure out how to resolve this. The laptop is a few years old so no warranty. I've done a lot of reading online about this issue and it seems many people have had the same problem but no posts gave me any real solution. Any help is very much appreciated. I relly don't know what to do now.

I bought my HP Pavilion 17-g121wm at Walmart. Works fine, but the fn-F12, which is supposed to toggle Airplane mode on/off, doesn't work. And although Settings shows that the laptop is in Airplane Mode, it isn't. Wifi is enabled. In short, I cannot turn Airplane mode on to conserve battery. I've tried updating the LAN driver, and also installing F12 key driver. Neither helped. I'm looking for some way to be able to toggle wireless on and off. Right now, wireless is always on and I can't change it.

I am using an HP laptop with Windows 8.

My problem: I am looking for a way to disable the wifi (airplane mode) button. I am NOT looking for a way to disable wifi or airplane mode, but the actual button that controls airplane mode.

Why?: I never use the airplane mode button (because it is useless), and because Windows thinks its funny to make me go to Charms/Settings/Change PC Settings in order to simply re-enable my wifi after accidentally hitting the airplane mode button (why do they? Who knows.). The reason I keep accidentally hitting the airplane mode button is because I use a mousepad on top of my keyboard while playing games (which frequently hits the airplane mode button). If I cannot find out how to disable the button, then I will simply rip the physical key out of my keyboard (since Windows can't find a better way to solve MINOR issues like these) as a means to stop accidentally hitting the key.

How can I simply disable the button's use?

Thank you,

-Miles
 

Answer:How to disable airplane mode *button* in Windows 8?

The only Airplane buttons in Windows 8 that I have found are the one in Settings and the one you get to via the Network icon in the Notification Area. Are you talking about the latter one? Theoretically that is a toggle that will then turn Airplane Mode back off (i.e., turn the Wi-Fi back on).

On my Lenovo I can also toggle it via the Fn + F5 key combination, but of course that is not part of Windows.

A lot of people seem to be having trouble with the Wi-Fi button and with the airplane mode icon displaying when it shouldn't in Windows 10. Is there some kind of explanation or fix? I did a clean install of Windows 10, and the HP Wi-Fi button driver was installed automatically by the Windows installer, or at least I'm pretty sure it was. I seem to recall seeing it listed in Device Manager or someplace. Anyway, the button was working fine, but today I tried to switch my Wi-Fi off using the F12 button, and it didn't work. I clicked on the Wi-Fi icon in the task bar and switched to airplane mode that way. That worked, and the light on the Wi-Fi button changed from white to orange. I still couldn't use the F12 button to turn airplane mode off. I turned airplane mode off manually and reconnected to my Wi-Fi, but the airplane mode icon continued to show on the task bar, even though I was connected to the Internet, able to browse web pages, etc. I rebooted, and still the same problem. In network settings I went in and turned airplane mode off there (even though I was already connected), but the Wi-Fi button is still not working. Is this all a Windows 10 bug, or is there a fix? I noticed similar behavior on a friend's newer HP laptop (a Notebook 15 model) that came with Windows 10 installed--i.e., the airplane mode icon displaying despite the system having an active Wi-Fi connection. Thanks in advance for any advice or explanation.

Hello, I have had the laptop for nearly a year, still under warranty and, today, some keys stopped working on the keyboard, more concretly: 5 6 F1 F2 ? '  and CTRL (LEFT) keys (written with the touchscreen). The last time it worked I was using it in class taking some notes and those aforementioned keys were working. Once I finished, packed the laptop into the cover, and into the bag. ten minutes later I took it out in the library and they did not work.No water spilling had occurred (it was dry and the bag was dry too). And also there were no hits to the terminal. They just seemed to stop working, the pressure input feels pretty the same, so they are not stuck by any material underneath. I tried reinstalling the drives (through the hardware management), checked all options in keyboard assesment....tried with safe mode, still do not work.  Could it be some defect and should call for a replacement? Thanks beforehand.

Welcome to the Lenovo Community !
 
Water spilled into a laptop can cause a variety of problems as well as short  circuits.  It would be difficult to pin point exactly where your problems lie.  I suspect though that laptop isn't thoroughly dried out yet which maybe part of the problem.  I would suggest you open it up and let it continue to dry out, before proceeding further.  For your reference here is a link to your model's Hardware Maintenance Manual.......

I recently updated to the Windwos 10 Fall Creators update (Build 1709, 16299.125), and as soon as I updated, the graphics driver failed and switched to the Microsoft Basic Display Adapter. I tried updating and rolling back the driver without success. My driver right now is at the latest version (10.18.10.4358). I already tried fixing this issue with Microsoft support but they couldn't find any solutions. Microsoft Support Link: https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/windows_10-hardware/intel-hd-graphics-not-working-...

HELP. My keyboard and touchpad stopped working. Laptop is brand new. I checked Control Panel > Device Manager and system says both of them are working fine. Drivers are also updated.I`m typing with an external keyboard and mouse. Touchscreen and touch-keyboard work both fine. Is there anything I can check in the OS to verify what is going on? Maybe I turned off something. It's a mistery, laptop is brand new.Thanks in advance!!

I have a lenovo ideapad flex 2 14 running winows 8.1. It has keyboard backlight and is activated by pressing Fn and Spacebar together. But when I try doing that it just presses spacebar normally.

Just bought a new Lenovo Flex 10 from a retail and it works perfectly except that after an hour of use the touchscreen stops working, the computer still works ok, but only with the mousepad. The notebook came with Windows 8.1, and I haven't installed any program on it. I need an urgent response please, since i've been looking for days in the community and other support pages, and still can't get a satisfactory answer and the period to get the a refund are about to expire. Thanks in advance.

Answer:Lenovo Flex 10 touchscreen stops working after 1 hour of use.

hi riglesias,
 
Welcome to the Lenovo Forums.
 
Once the Touchscreen stops responding, can you check the following:
1. Open System Properties and see if the Touch functionality is still there 
  - Link to picture (Touchscreen feature is not detected)
  - Link to picture (Touchscreen feature is detected)
 
If the Touchscreen feature is detected, proceed to Step 2.
 
2. Press the Windows key? +R, type devmgmt.msc and press Enter. On the Device Manager, navigate to the Human Interface Devices section and uninstall anything that says HID-compliant device (this is the driver that controls the touchscreen). When finished, reboot the system and observe.
 
3. If the Touchscreen is still not working, hold the Shift Key and hit the restart button inside Windows and you should be able to see the image below then try to tap on the screen to test and observe. I
 
If the touch capability is still not functioning, I recommend you contact lenovo for service.

I have a year old Lenovo Ideapad Flex 4-1470 laptop.  The computer works perfectly, however the touch screen does not work all the time.  Some of the keys on the keyboard won't work, some areas of the screen do not register my finger everytime, etc.  I took it to the place of purchase (Office Max) and they ran a diagnostic check that came up perfect... the computer is working like it should.  I have a warranty on the computer for 3 years trough SquareTrade.  I don't use the touch screen really at all (only use it because it's there), but I'm annoyed that it doesn't work correctly because it's only a year old.  Any suggestions on a fix?  I can't find a calibration reset for the touch screen or any kind of up system reboot.  Any help will be appreciated.

Hi i just got an Ideapad Flex 15 and my touchscreen stopped working after it goes to sleep mode or a restart, and start working again after 2-5 minutes.  I reset the computer to initialsettings and it worked like intended, but once i get into windows 8.1 and install a few programs it did it again This is what i had installed so far:AVG free AntivirusMic Office 365CcleanerMozilla Firefox Drivers say they are all up to date.   It have to be a software/driver issue as the touchscreen worked perfectly on windows 8.0  is kinda annoying and i dont expect this kind of issues with a new PC  

Answer:Ideapad flex 15 w/windows 8.1 touchscreen stop working after sleep mode

Do you see anything special in event viewer? Right click on Start icon and select event viewer. Put errors and Warnings you see after the upgrade over here .... Also try updating drivers from here, microsoft drivers are sometimes funky:http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/downloads/detail.page?DocID=DS037056
