      A "Power2Go Key Activation" window may appear - ThinkCentre, ThinkStation and ThinkPad

      Additional Information

      The normal Lenovo Power2Go operation does not ask for a product key. The "Power2Go Key Activation" window asking for a key is showing up in error.

      This error is intermittent at a rate of one in twenty and only occurs when launching Power2Go from Lenovo QuickLaunch. The key dialog can be ignored by the user. The user may notice that during a session showing a key box that some Power2Go functions are limited. Closing Power2Go and launching it again will restore full functionality.
