I let my Lenovo Yoga Tablet 2 run out of battery, and now Windows Update thinks that Battery Saver is on (and won't install updates), even though the battery has fully recharged and Battery Saver is off.

I've checked the internet, and I've seen other people with the same problem, but nobody has a solution.

Any ideas?

  • I presume you have attempted a restart?

  • check in your bios, some bios have settings for battery management and for some reason the setting in your bios may be set on power saver.

  • @Ramhound I've restarted; shutdown, waited, & restarted; restarted with the volume up button held down; and a couple of other things. No dice.

    @Xavierjazz it's the OEM battery. It's not user-replaceable.

  • having the same problem now, restarting/mode switching/etc do not resolve the issue. will check out the bios feature, but will also monitor this thread and update when possible. May 13, 2016 at 9:56

I got the updates working again (in a roundabout way).
I turned my battery-saver off/on manually didn't help,
I then disabled Microsoft Surface ACPI in Windows Device Manager did not help either.
I then turned everything back on and after a day or so the updates started downloading again.
