PermaLink Thinkpad Power Manager problem03/02/2007 09:14 AM
I am working with a Lenovo Thinkpad T60 and ran into an unexpected problem. The Power Manager refused to start with the error You are not authorized to display the panel for selecting a power scheme though I am using a windows account with administrative rights.



The Power Manager just displayed an empty list of power schemes and saving a new one did not add it to the list, the new one just disappeared after saving.



Removing the software and reinstalling after a reboot did not fix the problem so I had to check the Windows Registry and found that the application had added a huge amount of power policies for unknown reason. I guess the application has problems with too many policies (overflow situation) and that causes the error message.



I deleted most of the power policies and restarted my Thinkpad.



This fixed the problem, I can now use the Thinkpad Power Manager again.



I still recommend to use Thinkpads, especially the Txx Series.
