Lenovo Settings - Power

Overview

Lenovo Settings - Power is a software program developed by Lenovo. The most common release is 7.44.4, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. During setup, the program creates a startup registration point in Windows in order to automatically start when any user boots the PC. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. The setup package generally installs about 46 files and is usually about 34.4 MB (36,068,647 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of those who have this installed, most are running it on Windows 8. While about 45% of users of Lenovo Settings - Power come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and Germany.
