I just got my mini 9 yesterday. I thought everything was working fine, then I realized I've never gotten the amber flashing light (from the battery status light next to the power indicator light) before the computer has gone into hibernation from low battery. I "chatted" online with someone at Dell, who said 1) the default is to NOT go on but he said he couldn't change it so it WOULD go on and 2)I could send the computer for repair or get it replaced. He said it should be green when the battery is charged and flash amber when it's low. But he didn't seem all that familiar with the unit.
PLEASE...I know how knowledgeable you guys are out there. Would someone tell me if his information is correct. Should it be green? Is my computer broken or is there just some setting that needs to be changed? I saw that you can set when you get a low battery "audible alarm" but I couldn't find anything about changing how the battery status light works. I like this machine and would really like to avoid sending it back. I don't know what problems the replacement might have.
THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!
