Lenovo power manager gauge not updating
The utility also provides an easy way to restore notebook power settings to the HP recommended settings.Think Vantage Power Manager is a program developed by Lenovo.

The Think Vantage Power Manager Utility notifies you when the current notebook power settings do not match the settings that Lenovo recommends.
The following workaround fixed it for me: Install the Windows 10 Assessment and Deployment Kit ( adksetup for Windows 10) and download from Microsoft.
(when you install Windows ADK, choose only Application Compatibility Toolki (ACT)) From the start menu, run the Compatibility Administrator, either the 32-bit or the 64-bit version depending on your application In the left-hand pane under System Database (32/64-bit) - Applications, look for the corresponding application ( Lenovo Power Manager) In the large pane on the right-hand side there should be an entry App Help - HARDBLOCK Right-click the exe-file with the hard block and select Disable entry Now you should be good to go.
Lenovo Settings may also prompt you to download a bunch of other hidden Lenovo updates that can't be found from anywhere else.
I've let it download these and they haven't seemed to cause any problems, and may be necessary to get the custom battery threshold, as well as the battery gauge!
There is a new update package to Lenovo Settings n1lsd29( https://download.lenovo.com/pccbbs/mobiles/n1lsd29) that includes an updated Battery Gauge.
