    Hi !
    Any time I use a metro UI app or Google Chrome, the battery level indicator is o longer visible as it sits in the taskbar.
    Where can I find an indicator (gadget) that would pop up whenever battery level is low ?
    thx

    Sweet,in that case the OP should just set a preferred low-battery level warning and he'll be informed when he's running on fumes :) Btw,if you didn't post the image of the battery warning,I'd never would've seen it as I use an ASUS UX32VD as my main portable machine and it's battery is a monster with the proper settings :)
