Upon installing Lenovo Vantage from the Windows Store, I've discovered that at some point it was updated (as when the machine belonged to work, Lenovo Vantage at least reported what AC adapter you were using, as well as gave you the option to limit battery charge to extend the life of the Li-Ion battery) and now reports that the Lenovo Power Management Driver is either not installed or functioning properly. The Lenovo driver it recommends you install apparently doesn't work with the T410 hardware...
Has anyone else had this issue before? How did you fix it?
I'm considering rolling the machine back to Windows 7 so that all the hardware works properly (Looking at you Power Management!). I'm just a little bit excited as I've been drooling over a Lenovo for ages now, and I've finally got one in my possession!
Get the latest power management driver here, and then run the setup in compatibility mode. If I remember it right, I selected Windows 7 64-bit as the compatibility layer.
This worked with Lenovo Vantage, at least on Windows 10 1803 as far as I can recall. If this does not work, I strongly suggest downgrading back to Windows 7. It is probably better that way though, since your platform does not have software drivers that are specifically designed for Windows 10.
I suspect that this machine is just too old, which I feel is sad because it has a huge potential to be a great machine. That and it's got arguably the best laptop keyboard i've ever used... (the Compaq Presario R3055CA was a very close second). Maybe one day I can drop the nearly $4000 on a new P14s and have the full fat Lenovo Experience on a machine that is supported by Lenovo.
