    Battery issues only in Windows (Kernel-Power-Failure)


    I'm not sure where the best place for this is, so please mods move it to the right spot.

    Hey, so for a while now I've believed that my battery is dying. It probably is, but today I noticed that it's probably not as bad as I thought.

    So, I'll be happily using my laptop for a little while, from 100% charged and suddenly, power failure.

    There is no specific battery level, but usually in the region of 70-80%. Sometimes after plugging in and rebooting, the battery level will read as very different from before the power failure. Booting after such a failure generally gets me as far as the login screen before sudden power failure again.

    To all intents and purposes, this behaviour seems like a power failure (the battery level action to hibernate is not triggered). Today I learned that this only happens in Windows. I have a Linux partition on my drive but for reasons rarely use it without wall power.
    My laptop battery just 'died' about ten minutes ago while I was using Windows, including 'dying' before I can type my password at login after trying to reboot. Yet here I am, sitting pretty from Linux.

    This seems to me then that it's an OS (or driver - do batteries use drivers?) issue, but I've already explored all the common settings in Windows that I can find searching for laptop battery death while charged - namely:
    badly configured low/critical battery levels and actions (verified to not be set too high)
    ensuring that hiberfil.sys is large enough to hold the entire system RAM contents (currently set to 110% of system RAM)
    verifying that the battery is not actually running out of charge (I mean, I'm still using it in another OS so, seems fine to me).

    Any direction you could point me in to get Windows to accept that the battery does indeed have charge would be great.

    Either that or the part of the Linux spec that shows how they get it to run on æther when the attached battery has no charge, because that seems like a technology the whole world could do with *Wink

    :)

    restart and kernel-power event

    Hi,



    The kernel power event ID 41 error occurs when the computer is shut down, or it restarts unexpectedly. When a computer that is running Windows starts, a check is performed to determine whether the computer was shut down cleanly. If the computer was not shut
    down cleanly, a Kernel Power Event 41 message is generated.



    Try this, see if it works for you:

    • Go to "Settings"
    • Select "System"
    • Select "Power and Sleep"
    • Select "Additional Power Settings"
    • Select "Choose what the power buttons do"
    • Select "Change settings currently available"
    • Ensure that "Turn on fast start up" is deselected (unticked)
    • Click on "Save Changes"


    Restart your computer after performing the steps.



    Let us know if the above steps resolved the issue.

    Kernel 41 Power issue

    Hello,

    When the computer shuts down or restarts unexpectedly, the Kernel Power Event ID 41 error occurs. Upon starting a computer running Windows, the system checks whether the computer was properly shut down. If the computer was not properly turned off, a Kernel
    Power Event 41 message is generated.

    Regarding the error that you're getting, we suggest that you check the solution provided by
