    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    Hey I think I've found a workaround. How about a usb controlled power switch? It should be possible to translate 90% battery to switching it off and 30% to turning it on, right? After thinking about I've decided not to remove the battery whenever I don't need it, putting in additional RAM was an...

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    Hey thanks for the tip! I think I'll actually do that, the only inconvenience would be that I'm not mobile within my house anymore while the battery is removed. Would there be any software with permissions to bypass the battery, while it's in the notebook? That would be cool, so I could have it...

    Disable Display Brightness Change When Plugging Charger In/Out

    I am sorry, I am quite illiterate regarding scripts; I have learned a few things using Ubuntu, but ... Should I just copy & paste this into cmd and make that process run on every startup? Is the value 0-64 hex (0-100 decimal) a computer instruction or should I set a value here? I guess...

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    +e) We all agree that this would have been useful five years ago or so. So one should be able to find such software in the depth of the internet, but I can't. So I guess A-D were culpable then. I don't want to be annoying, I just don't like the thought of wasting my battery while the LapTop is...

    Disable Display Brightness Change When Plugging Charger In/Out

    Thank you very much! I would have to run that command each time I change the brightness via Fn+[up]/[down] for it to be copied to the power plans. It would not run in the background to automatically detect when I change the display brightness and then copy it, Am I wrong? I guess I have to...

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    @BBJ: Let's suppose one 20-100% Recharge Cycle is still way healthier than 40 98%-100% cycles even for today's LapTops. There would be several reasons for still no software (paid or free) being available. A) "Proprietary hardware and drivers" as Neemobeer mentioned is something I didn't even...

    Disable Display Brightness Change When Plugging Charger In/Out

    A possible workaround would be to automatically copy the current brightness to all other power plans. Any idea how to do that?

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    First of all thank you for that extensive information BIGBEARJEDI! No it is a rather new LapTop; I think it was introduced two years ago. So from the information you and Neemobeer provided I conclude, there is no significantly healthier power interval anymore. But limiting recharge cycles should...

    Completely change Win10 Language

    I tried that and changed the language back and forth again. Now it seems to work! So thank you!

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    But the laptop always decides to charge, if the battery isn't full, am I wrong? For one there is Lenovo Power Management, which is good for me as I have a Lenovo LapTop. This takes care of the dont-charge-above-80% thing. Here someone wrote a script on Ubuntu, shouldn't that be possible on...

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    OK, so how do I do that? To have it only start charging at 40% again and not 98%.

    Disable Display Brightness Change When Plugging Charger In/Out

    Yeah, the thing is I am always manually adjusting the brightness depending on the background light / daytime. So if I have it plugged in around midday its at 100%. I plug it off go to eventually 20% at 10pm and start charging again. -> 100% I want charging to just have no effect on the display...

    Disable Display Brightness Change When Plugging Charger In/Out

    Hey everyone, does anybody know how to stop Win 10 from changing the display brightness each time I connect / disconnect the charger? To prevent any misunderstanding, I am not reffering to the adaptive display settings regarding specific power plans. Thanks! Markus

    Stop Charging When Power >80%, Start When <=40

    Hey everyone, to prolong battery life I would like a tool, program, way to have my laptop stop charging, when the battery is at 80% (or more?!) of its capacity. To then wait for it to drop to 40% and only then start charging again. This obviously can only be a temporary tweak (e.g. when the...

    Completely change Win10 Language

    I just was in contact with a Microsoft support tech via remote control for almost an hour. The only thing they could come up with was a new clean install. But I don't want the language to be English that urgently. It's just neat to have the system in the language it was designed in. Special...
