Venue 11 Pro Battery Life Status

Jump to solution

Hovering over the battery icon in the system tray only provides me with percentage remaining.  How do I enable the feature that will show estimated time remaining?

Hello, 

i think i got it to work by disable Connected Standby. Seach for regedit.exe and run it. Go to:

 HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Control\Power

Change the value of the key CsEnabled from 1 to 0 and reboot. After a short time it shows the remaining time. Let me know if it works. (works for me on my V11P i3)

I would also like to know this. Did windows 8.1 remove this? Or Dell?

Another bump.   Does anyone from Dell technical support read these forums?

Thank you so much for this answer!  This worked great on my 5130 Venue 11.  

Fixed my battery drain issue as well.  I've switched the default power button and lid close action to hibernate and the compromise is maybe 3-4 seconds of startup time.  Well worth it IMO.
