    battery power icon suddenly does not appear


    I have a Lenovo T560 laptop, which has a built-in battery and a removable battery. Yesterday the battery icon displayed normally. Today it is gone.

    I did the normal searching and followed the instructions for displaying icons in the Notification Area of the Taskbar. Notice that the Power icon is ON but greyed out.

    I checked Device Manager, and both batteries seem to be OK.

    So what gives here? Most of my system issues, I can resolve with a Google search. This one I can't. *Confused
