Is the battery discharge time accurate? Does the battery scale down to 0% or does the machine turn off at 10%?
Comment 2 Matt Castelein 2008-12-16 10:13:38 EST
The battery discharge time always seems to be "estimated," but the time is accurate.  The system lets the battery run down right past the point where the battery light on the front starts blinking to indicate critical level, but then the system continues to run all the way down to 0%.
Comment 3 Matt Castelein 2008-12-16 22:05:06 EST
the battery time is no longer estimated, and this time i did get a warning, this computer will hibernate in two minutes.. it didn't do it for another 8 minutes, but it did do it so i'm not worried about that delay if you're not.. otherwise I consider this closed...
