prasoid, how do you know it stopped charging?

Does your battery icon in the systray say "XX% available - Plugged in, not Charging"? That is normal. The charging stops anywhere from 93% up to 100%, mine is at 98%

The battery charging circuit conditions the battery and maintains it long term while continually plugged in to the wall outlet by limiting the charge level and varying the drain / charge on the battery.

You can't force it to charge further, and don't try, you will wear out your laptop plug socket unplugging and plugging back in to get it to charge that last few percent ;)

Or, is there a real problem with charging? What happened?
