Essentially what I'd like to do is use my laptop normally and just have a sort of timer in the background. I will charge my battery to full, and then nearly drain it.

I would like for there to be some sort of stopwatch in the background that's running until I decide to stop it when it's nearly dead. I would like for it to pause whenever I shut the lid on my laptop, and start again when I open it. Is this achievable?

  • I think it is possible as long as you don't shutdown the laptop. I don't know whether there is an existing utility but someone can right a script for this... – Sasuke Uchiha Jun 29 at 3:37
  • Yeah I wondered if I could execute a script. I am not sure what I would need to write to make that happen. It would need to stay active for as long as I am doing the test. – henduUbuntu Jun 29 at 3:39
  • I think you can also achieve what you want through the Power Statistics app – Sasuke Uchiha Jun 29 at 3:46
  • I saw that recommended, but there is no information on the x-y scatter graph. It should show the power percentage level, and time elapsed. Older pictures of the app show this so it's kind of confusing. – henduUbuntu Jun 29 at 3:48
  • What do you mean? It is clear enough in the History tab. Y axis show the percentage and X axis shows the time. If you want it to be more detailed, you can change the time shown in the graph. Change the graph type dropdown to "Time to empty" – Sasuke Uchiha Jun 29 at 4:00

You can achieve this by the "Power Statistics" app.

It is clear enough in the History tab. Change the graph type dropdown to "Time to empty" Y-axis shows the percentage and X-axis shows the time it took to discharge. If you want it to be more detailed, you can change the time shown in the graph.
