Enabling the 'Conservation mode' on the Ideapad

Today, I got the following error message:

"The Battery is charged to a high capacity
Staying above 70% capacity for a long period of time is adverse to the battery's health. Enable 'Conservation mode' in settings."

And personally, I don't find it obvious how to do that, namely to enable the Conservation mode in the settings. I wasn't even sure where the settings are... (sorry got to get used to this operative system).

After a bit of research, I found how to do it and thought I would share it with you guys. So here is a step-by-step guide about how to do that:

1) Use the Microsoft button (the four squares/rectangles). It will give you the metro interface

2) Type "Energy Manager" anywhere in the metro interface. This will activate the search. After you enter a few letters, you should get the "Energy Manager" app show up.

3) Launch the Application "Energy Manager". It will give you some information about energy use on your PC

4) Click on next until the end (take your time if you want, I just skipped it to the end). At the end you should get a button to start the app.

5) Find the extended mode button (or whatever you want to call this button)

6) Under settings, you can enable the Conservation Mode

And here you go, that's what you were looking for (hopefully). Enjoy!
