Default Critical Battery Alarm Won't Go Below 7% - 12-13-2008, 07:23 PM

I have a strange problem where I can't bring the Critical Battery Alarm slider down below 7%. I can drag it down farther, but then it snaps right back to 7%. Same thing with the Low Battery Alarm. This is really annoying because 7% is quite a bit of time. I've noticed this on another Dell Mini as well. Anyone else have this problem, or know of a solution?

(The alarms are in Power Options, Alarms tab.)

Is windows giving its alarm on top of the dell hardware alarm?
the dell's BIOS starts beeping when below 10% battery... really annoying
Supposedly the next BIOS update will get rid of that beep.
