battery monitor

Discussion in 'Laptops' started by Rich Greenberg, Jul 18, 2011.

  1. I am looking for a battery monitor utility for my Dell Inspiration 600m.

    My Toshiba laptop has a battery monitor in the system tray that shows
    one of the following states:

    1) On battery with xx% charge remaining
    2) On AC Line with battery charging presently at xx%.
    3) on AC line with battery fully charged.

    3 is really a special case of 2, but the program uses a different icon
    for it.

    Is there a similar utility for my Dell Inspiration 600m?

    I own a 600m. TFM is for download only; it was not included in print form
    with the 600m. I'm surprised you couldn't see the battery-state icon; it's
    clearly in the far lower right of the screen (unless someone deleted it)
    among all the other little icons down there.

  5. Good reason my wife didn't get it.
    Yes, I did see it, but it appeared to give only part of what I wanted.
    Wife had seen what my Toshiba showed, wanted same.
