Why doesn't my HP Mini 210 netbook display an estimate of the amount of time it can run on battery power? My only previous laptop (an old Dell Latitude D600) could do this. I downgraded the HP from Windows 7 Starter to Windows XP immediately after I got it, so I don't know if this feature worked out of the box.
Is there anything I can do to get a real time battery run time estimate like my Dell has?
Here are some screenshots of the power meter control panel from both laptops (both XP SP3), to show what I'm taking about:
Dell D600 (battery is at 84%, and can run the laptop for an estimated 2 hours 19 minutes):
HP Mini 210 (battery is at 100%, but who knows what that means, since there's no estimate. It won't give an estimate if the battery is less than 100%, either):
