I have a very frustrating problem..
I found this out one day on the way home on the train, my battery showed low and i was playing a game over wireless on the train :P so i turned off all power features to stop it from hibernating etc.
And to my disbielf it was still working at the end of the train trip. when i quit the game i noticed it was showing 0% batt.
So i charged it up and used it on bat but forgot to set the power config back on. and saw it hit 0% again. but this time i timed how long it stayed on 0%. it was atleast an hour!
Now losing an hour of battery sucks so i tried recalibrating it didnt work, tryed 2 more times still didnt work.
HP has no idea.
(still has 2 years of warrenty left as its businiess class laptop)
Any ideas people?
I really would like to turn the hibernate at 3% back on..
