Lenovo ThinkPad: What does the PWMDBSVC.exe service do? It's writing a C:\Log.txt file

I found a file that keeps popping up in my C:\ drive root, Log.txt ... after installing Process Monitor and seeing what process was writing to it, I came across PWMDBSVC.exe, which appears to be part of the Lenovo ThinkPad software. Even if I delete it, I can get it to re-create the Log.txt when I lock and unlock my workstation.

"This is down to the Power Management utility, When I have to manage Lenovo machines, I personally disable the service and use Batterycare.

So, you can disable it. Take a look at the utility first and make sure it doesn't offer anything that you really need, however, I can say that it doesn't ""brake"" anything by removing it."
