    No idea whether it's been posted before, but it looks like a good tip.

Hey everyone! I was wondering if it was possible to get the old, unobtrusive low battery notification from Windows 7 on Windows 8? As it stands, whenever I hit 10% battery, this huge bar pops up right in the middle of my screen and minimizes anything I might be working on. This is fine in most...
OK so Windows used to warn me my battery is low when it is at 10%. However, it no longer does, so it will now shut down without warning me to plug in my charger. :confused: Why is it doing this, and what can I do to make it warn me again? It is so ridiculous that I have to restart the computer just...
