Posted by Britt Duncan - December 22, 2014

Do you often keep a very close eye on the battery level when you work on your laptop? If yes, you can follow this Windows tutorial to set the option. Then, you will be able to get a warning when your battery reaches a certain level. If the laptop battery runs low, you can charge it in time so as to avoid automatic shutdown. The following is a detailed tutorial:

1. Click on the Start Menu and type “Edit Power Plan” into the search box. Select the Edit Power Plan option when it appears.

2. Click the “Change Advanced Power Settings” at the bottom of the window.

3. Select the power plan from the top dropdown that corresponds to what you use when you’re on battery power. Scroll down to “Battery” and click the plus sign next to it. Here you can adjust the Low Battery Level or Critical Battery Level. Low Battery Level corresponds to the first alert you get, that lets you know you’re running out of battery, and Critical Battery Level corresponds to when your computer goes into hibernation.
