I'm having issues with my battery threshold option. I want the battery to stop charging when it reaches 80%. However, it will never keep the setting on forever. I randomly find out that it charges the battery to 100% instead of stopping at 80%. This is most likely to happen when my Thinkpad P50 is turned off and is charging. Although, it is not every time that it simply charges to 100% instead.
Can someone help me figure out why on earth it keeps turning the battery threshold option completely off? I want to have the option on permanently so that my battery will live longer.

Is your system always connected to AC power?
Or does this problem only happen after you unplug AC power and run the battery down, and then reconnect AC power?

I found that if I let the battery drain all the way to 0%, and then charge it, it will charge to 100% regardless of the battery charge threshold setting. But so far I haven't seen this problem in any other scenario. Do you ever let the battery drain all the way to 0%?
