Default Battery light never lights up? - 01-10-2009, 12:32 AM

When i plug the mini into AC adapter, the power light is on. After i unplug it, the batterly light does not light up, instead, the power light is still on. This is quite differet from other lappies i have used, IBM and HP. Dell tech support told me it's normal and the battery light is on only when the battery is extremely low.

Yesterday the mini was running on battery alone for quite a while and it kept beeping indicating low battery. However, the battery light was still off. Is this normal? Maybe the light is bad?

Thank you.

I thought mine was broken too. It is only to warn you of a low battery. Let yours run down and then look for the blinking.

There is a mod somewhere in this forum so you can change it to do something else, like show when your hard drive (the SSD) is being accessed.
