    In my laptopís Vista power settings, I have activated the computerís low battery level and critical level notification and have set the computer to go into standby mode when I get to the critical battery level. What I would like to do is to get the computer to beep or make an alarm sound when it reaches the low battery level, since I donít always see the notification. The only options I see under ďlow battery levelĒ are Sleep, Hibernate, and Shut down. However, on a previous laptop that had XP installed, I know there was a way to get the computer to beep when it reached a low battery level. Is this no longer possible on Vista Home Premium?

    I'm in my XP partition now but Vista is similar. Control Panel>Sounds>Sound Tab. Enable Critical battery Alarm Sound.

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!
