What to do when the battery alarm sounds

With repeated discharges and recharges, the battery’s capacity will gradually decrease. A frequently used older battery will not power the computer for as long as a new battery, even when both are fully charged.

HINT: Wait at least 16 seconds after turning on the computer before trying to monitor the remaining battery power. The computer needs this time to check the battery’s remaining capacity and perform its calculations.

The computer drains battery power more quickly at low temperatures. Check your remaining charge frequently if you’re working in temperatures below 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

The Windows operating system has additional power management options that can be accessed through an icon in

the Control Panel. For more information, see “Power Saver” on page 167
