thank you for your help. But im afraid my system looks diffrent:

Hi Michael.
Only a thought but are you sure you accessed configuration from the desktop battery indicator. If you can do it this way and not from the settings menu i think you will have better luck.
Hope you can resolve your power problems.


@bing Thanks for your reply. Im 100% positive the view i get . Regards

no worries

I had to install the software manually. I found it by searching for it on the “store”
