View Full Version : power zap on hard reboot?
02-04-2007, 08:23 PM
Is it just me or my feeling, for every hard reboot, the system seem to zap a lot of power from the battery. Sometime, it drop like 2 bars. Also, it seem if the system is not properly shutdown or screen lock, the battery got drain like overnight. This is quite important, on the 770, the hard cover will do that for you and it's no brainer. I don't want to think about that every time I put it in my pocket or have to shut it down before I go to sleep.

It's just you. I don't have that problem. Batteries don't last forever, possible you're battery is starting to give up the ghost.

It's a pretty common problem actually - the power meter isn't very accurate. Quite often I'll have 2 or 3 bars then reboot and get a low power warning. It's not that the reboot has sucked down the battery, it's just that I didn't really have those 2 bars before the reboot.

freeman: It sounds like your battery may be getting a bit tired. I've seen that symptom on a lot of my older gadgets, the battery seems to acquire more internal resistance as it gets older, and after a boot or other activity that draws _slightly_ more power than normal idling you'll see the battery kneel for a while.
