T460 shutdown when external battery low

2017-05-21, 23:59 PM

My T460 refuses to use its internal battery when the removable one gets low. The removable battery reached 5%, and the system hibernated rather than utilising the internal battery which was at 99% charge. How can I fix this?

Do you have the latest BIOS and power drivers?

If you have a warranty, call support.

If i remove the battery or try to eject it, a box pops up saying

"This device is currently in use. Close any programs that might be using it and try again."

 

After doing this, the two seperate percentages in the windows battery level dialog box disappear.
