    Battery Charging


    In windows 7 I was able to maximize my battery life with 80% available not charging.

    I'd like to change this as it shortens my time when unplugged.

    How do I do this?

    You mean 20% not charging. This is a "feature" of some laptops, like Sony's and you have to install special drivers to get it to override it. Unfortunately, I have yet to find which driver it is and know if it works in Windows 8 yet. The Sony driver system is screwed up, you have to install them in the right order, and there's no documentation on which ones are for what purpose.. it's just stupid.
