    Nothing is perfect. Youre ok...Plus connecting to the internet brightness music etc can drain the battery I wouldnt worry about it.

    Yeah, mine does that all the time. It depends on what you're doing also. I could be playing a game with 80% battery. Then I close the game and open notes and my battery goes up. It's just what you're doing, and like Torin 93 said.
  4. don't rely on sb settings' battery level numbers...they are rather annoyingly inaccurate: one time I got the 20% battery remaining message and the battery icon and the numbers turned red. 2 minutes later, still on batter it jumps up to 30% and turns from red to green. And obviously I didn't charge it or anything

    My SB Settings says 100 while plugged in, and anything between 89-100 when I undock. It normally rises to 100 within a few minutes.

    Yeah it shouldn't be a real problem. My friend was using his iPod with about 75% brightness up and he had 18% battery left, so my friend lowered it to about 25% brightness and the battery percentage went all the way back up to 45%.

    You can't expect it to be perfectly accurate. Whose laptop is completely accurate? Barely anyones, I'm betting.

    it was same with mine, and i also thought that the battery is going crazy, and then realized that sbsettings is inaccurate, no need worrying about that
