It's early in the morning, sipping my coffee and working away on my laptop, and sudden;y *ping* the battery warning comes up informing me theres little life left in the little guy. Thats strange, the chords' plugged in the side but it doesn't seem to be charging (follows chord to the wall socket with eyes)...DOH! It's not switched on!

No problems, I have my remote control power socket switch; no need to get up!

*click*

...charging

       No. No. I didn't say anything.
