Battery percentage on the Taskbar

#1 Post by chzuck » Thu Dec 20, 2012 12:02 am

I had an icon on the taskbar that included the percentage of battery power left. I wiped the hard drive and installed my clean backup. It did not have that icon and I can't seem to find the Thinkpad software that I had loaded before to give me that icon and percentage. Anyone else have that and know what I need to do?

Download and install the Battery MaxiMiser/Power Manager from the T23 Drivers and Software page: http://support.lenovo.com/en_US/researc ... D=HT072383

It's about halfway down this huge page. The direct links are here:

http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc ... u105u1.exe (Install package)
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc ... u105u1.txt (Readme file)

Opps... I naturally assumed that you're talking about a T23. However, the above package will handle any T2x or T30 system.

This youtube video helped me in getting back the battery percentage indicator on the taskbar. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8N4ow6RmA-0
