*********************************************************************** ** myBatteryMonitor - by Mad Dog Apps - mad_dog1979@live.com ** *********************************************************************** This application was written to overcome the Windows 7 bug where the built in Battery Low notification was not functioning correctly. Normally, when reaching a certain level Windows would notify you that you should plug the power supply in or shutdown the computer. Instead, Windows 7 skipped this step and will automatically perform the designated sleep/hibernate/shutdown task at the appropriate battery level. *********************************************************************** Installation: - Installed in c:\program files\Mad Dog Apps *********************************************************************** Features/Usage: - Tray Icon which changes depending on the power/battery status - Tray Icon flashes whilst battery is below user-designated alert level - Bubble notification and alarm sound when battery reaches alert level - User-selectable alert level (5-95% in 5% increments) - System-tray Menu (right-click) or Small Window (double-click) options - Click the bubble notification to acknowledge alarm status - Window snaps to just above/beside System Tray - User-selected alert level saved in registry - Text Icon: - Green: Plugged In/Charging - Orange: Using Battery and Battery Level > Alert Level - Red: Using Battery and Battery Level < Alert Level *********************************************************************** Change Log: v1.0.0.4 - Changed text colour to orange whilst using battery and battery level greater than alert level.
