Karl, with the Lenovo units is this control at the level of the factory power management software (ThinkVantage) or at the hardware level. My Lenovo laptops would control charge level at the factory software power management level through the ThinkVantage power manager. The factory image defaults to start charging at 96% and stop at 100%. Personally, I select the option which allows my custom settings of 80% start and 94% stop. Three that I use in the ThinkPad line have it this way. Since you dual boot a Linux distro are you using the BIOS to set charging thresholds? I always wondered if Lenovo's 100% was actually a little less to protect the battery. Thanks.
