How to apply conservation mode battery lenovo z51-70 in hackintosh El capitan


Recommended Posts

Hello ,

I installed mac os retail Elcapitan with all driver

Just small issues with battery and brightness

Firstly, I 'm not able to adjust brightness

And brightness slider app is software add only dark layer on screen

How to adjust screen from hardware ?

The other issue is battery ,

In windows, i was able to make battery stop at 60% to increase battery life

I want to know how to apply the same thing for El capitan ?

Add this to /EFI/Clover/kexts/10.11 for Brightness Control

Not sure what you mean by stopping battery @ 60%. It's probably a Windows options utilizing some Lenovo software.

You should remove NullCPUPowerManagement.kext and add DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext

NullCPUPowermanagement does exactly what the name implies, so removing it will increase your battery life.

DisableTurboBoostBattery.kext will disable turboboost while on battery to increase battery life.
