Your wireless will shut off at 15% battery charge. You should not let it get that low, rarely.

Charge it regularly during the day to top it off, best recommended procedure.

Make sure that you properly close your applications. If you hit the Red End key you are just putting the app in the background where it will continue to consume your battery. Always use the Escape key or Menu>end (or Close).

I don't know what you mean by "redeemed"

Did you read the link I sent you? read the part about once a month letting it drain completely, and charging fully to 100% 2-3 x in a row.

I think she meant "Deemed Drained"...?

I agree with JSanders. Don't let your battery get that low. Too many hard depletions are not good for this type of battery.

Take care of that battery (read the link, hint hint) and your battery will be redeemed!
