    I hate having my second topic here be another question/request for help, but i cant say i have alot of choice.

    I have noticed some odd behavior over the last few days - seemlingly randomly, windows will "combine" the internal and external (power cover) batteries - it reports an averaged percent, but at times will not show each battery individually; if i remove the cover, the percentage will drop to the average of a 0% cover and internal, rather than bouncing back up to 100%.

    Looking at Battery Bar shows the two distinct batteries, and i dont see any other issues. Should i chalk this up to a Windows quirk, or am i looking at a growing HW problem?

    It sounds like a glitch.
