OK my ASUS G73SW-3DE is about 3 weeks old...Ive probably use it on batteries about 6 times already but always run it down empty then charge completely...

This past 3 days I was just using it plugged in to the power outlet...leaving it overnight turned off but still plugged in to the wall...

I noticed this morning it saying "99% not charging" is this a feature so it dont over charge batteries?

Yes. To prevent excessive needless charging.

ok now its saying 97%...not charging...how low does it go if I continue using the AC adapter?

I recalibrated the battery last night...

HWMonitor is saying my battery wear is 4%

Is this normal?

All normal.

Charges when charge level drops to or below 95%.

Whew...Thanks!

I was worried that I might have a bad battery or something...and My G73SW-3DE is just a month old...didnt want to use the warranty already...

Mine shows 4.7% wear (I don't remember it ever showing less than 4%).

I've had it since March 2010!
