I want to give some life to my old laptop, and recalibrate the battery (old now). When reading around on forums, the common info is to turn on the PC, drain the batt, even from Bios, and then recharge batt without having the PC on, and repeat cycle until satisfied. I hope there is a way to soft up this via ACPI without the need to actually let the PC die out of misery. I was hoping for a program that when running, shall unlink the actual AC power source from the Battery charging mechanism.
So when program is running, even if the laptop is plugged, it shall use the power from Battery until fully drained, then, once drained, it starts recharging. All this without shutting down the PC when no power from battery.
I have checked all around, and the only softwares found are actually fancy readers for the Bat0/Info data or behaviour modifier for the rest of the PC.
Has any of you ever heard of a software doing this?
