    Decided to discharge the battery on my Dell Inspiron 600M today. Up until today, I had been running it on AC for the past 3 weeks. Upon unplugging, the display got significantly dimmer. Is this normal for a lappy??

    Yea, found the setting under dsiplay in the control panel. PowerPlay is activated which is saving battery life. No biggee since I run on AC 99% of the time. Gonna leave it activated since I am only gonna be discharging the battery once a month.

    Now, if I took this lappy on a trip and was gonna watch a DVD, then I might be deactivating the bear. ;f
