Ishayin Posted March 24, 2022 Share Posted March 24, 2022 Hi folks, Something that has always been a little weird with my Clevo (P751ZM) is the battery management. I basically always use it plugged in, and so the battery is basically just there as an backup power supply. The power connection at the back is not the most robust, and occasionally becomes disconnected when I move the laptop back and forth a little on the desk. However, I never notice when this happens, nor do I get any alert when the battery is running low (which happens rather quickly on this machine). So typically, the first I know about it is when it suddenly goes dead. And yes, I mean dead. It usually doesn't even go into hibernation, just runs all the way down to 0% and then dies. However, it did happen again last night, but for once it seemed to recover from having successfully hibernated, and then showed there was still 47% battery remaining... which was a bit of an odd one off. Any comments on suggestions that might help with this are welcome, and in particular I'm wondering if there are any recommendations for utilities that: 1) Provide a warning when power has been disconnected. 2) Provide any other sort of battery management capabilities such as keeping it in the ~40–80% region for longevity. I know there are some more recent laptops that have options for the latter (I think on some Macs?), though possibly it is a bit late to help with my old battery.
