Laptop acting strange after reaching 100% charge on battery


Recommended Posts

My wife is now reporting strange behavior on the laptop that I purchased the new battery for, when it reaches full charge, it is apparently going to sleep as soon as it reaches 100%. I have remotely checked the power management settings, and I checked all the settings, so there is nothing that I can think of that is causing the issue. Does anyone have any ideas what might be causing this?

You check the screensaver settings? I found this to be something that puts the computer to sleep, too.

 

Might want to try and wear that battery out, as in 0% power, and then recharge. See what it does then. Could be a fluke in the battery.

Had not thought about the screensaver, I'll check that when I can, and I will have her do a full discharge and see what happens.

OK , she says that she lets the battery go down to ~5% at which time it shuts off, before she charges it.

Does she still get the 100% sleep issue?

OK, I'd look at the screensaver settings.

Huh, might there be a battery setting for that? Been ages since I used Windows, lol...

maybe this .. found it on another site. While the battery says 100% maybe something is lost in translation and the laptop is getting the signal that it's dead.

 

Update: modified the power plan to do nothing when critical battery reached. This time the laptop did not shutdown. Instead I got the blue Windows message across the screen that the battery is critically low (indicated 0%). But, after a couple of seconds the warning disapeared and the battery level restored to 98%.

So, it seems the laptop does not like the new battery and sometimes looses the communication (as the message says). So, Going to replace the battery since I just got it. In the meantime, the fix is to stay with AC and set the power plan to do nothing in critical level.

Very interesting, the battery is brand new, so I plan on checking the power management settings in depth and see if there is something else we might be overlooking.

So I checked all the power management settings and they are all set correctly. There is no screensaver setup, and nothing else that I can possibly think that could be causing the issue.

Nothing in Event Viewer?  There should be a log ... for example mine ...

...and another one would be "Idle Timeout" (failed to capture it in a screenshot before I cleared my log).
