Windows 7 Battery Warning a Feature, Not Bug
Windows 7 users getting warnings that their batteries are on their last legs thought it was all a bug. Instead, it's simply Windows 7 giving more detailed information about the true state of your battery. If Windows 7 says the thing is dying, chances are it's really dying.
The alerts come when the battery is operating at 40 percent capacity. Hey, I'd rather listen to Windows and change the battery than lose work when the laptop shuts down! I've been there before.
