    My Transformer battery lasts for more than 10 hours. No need to measure anything. LOL

    Do you have one of those Asus Transformers? I was going to do get one, but changed my mind and went with the HP Envy x2.

    Yeah, it's an Asus Transformer. Works great. I love it. I added a 64GB MicroSD card which I use for my user files and for images using Macrium. The performance is really amazing. They have come a long way with this Atom processor.

    I've been really impressed by my Envy! It uses an Atom processor as well.

    If I remember right, the Envy was a lot more money.

    Yes it was or is, but I was able to get it refurbished for about half the original price. In the United States the Envy is selling for about $700, but I was able to get it for $450. (Amazon.com)

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...
