I've been looking for software to disable the charging of laptop battery when the AC Power is in, since I have a laptop without a removable battery and am near a powerpoint 90% of the time.
I've failed to find any such software. However I've seen a suggestion on a few internet forums that says you can shut off the charging by disabling the "Microsoft ACPI-Compliant control method battery" in the device manager.
Will there be unintended consequences to doing this? Will this achieve what I want (i.e., make it such that the battery is not being charged and is not being used even when AC power is connected)?
