Power Manager

Overview

Power Manager is a software program developed by Lenovo. The most common release is 6.67.2, with over 98% of all installations currently using this version. 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. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The setup package generally installs about 78 files and is usually about 30.02 MB (31,481,965 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 8. While about 59% of users of Power Manager come from the United States, it is also popular in Canada and United Kingdom.
