Default battery charging - 05-16-2009, 05:45 PM

I discovered a wierd thing. When Im charging the battery and my mini 12 is turned on, the battery reaches 100% without any problem. But when the mini is turned off its looks like it wont go beyond 90%, somewhere around this value the white led turns off. But when I turn mini on it continues charging. What am I doing wrong?

I've seen the same thing on mine too (XP, 1.6 GHZ). I don't think it's a big deal, however, and the rest of the power management on my computer seems fine. Hope that's the same for you.
