I'm wondering if there's a way to script changing the battery charge thresholds in Power Manager. Specifically, I always switch between the "always fully charge" and "custom" options. I usually don't like to keep Power Manager open and having to open it and go through a few clicks each time to change these settings can be a little tedious.

I too would love a quick way to toggle the thresholds. I travel for work on occasion, and I'd like to charge my batteries to 100% before taking a long flight, but the rest of the time, I would prefer my batteries were not constantly charged to the top. Anyone know where this information is stored? Registry?

Would a macro do it? Or perhaps try the (free) script utility I came across recently called Autohotkey, which you can find at http://www.autohotkey.com. There is a very useful forum attached with scripts of all kinds.

I hope that this is of some use to you.
