How old is the battery Paul it's quite likely that it's past due for replacement.I fear that it is the same issue you posted about before.

Enjoy the Choice :)

yo it's about three weeks old and it works ok this morning i've been going an hour after i just unplugged it and the battery still says 70%, apparently it's a linux mint(ubuntu) i have looked online and loads of people have the same problem but no one has a solution i thought one of you linux experts might have some killer skills and have a script change or summat??

then it just died again about ten seconds later it normally lasts 2 + hours in windows and i was only surfing???

If it's distro-specific, change distros - at least until a fix is found.
