Getting rid of the memory on your laptop battery

Most newer laptops have batteries that don’t have as much of the battery memory issues of the old clunker ten pounders. Well here’s an old old trick that might actually help regain some of life back into your laptop battery.

…the calibration process basically involves first turning off your screensaver and other power management settings that put the computer to sleep. Then fully charge the laptop before letting it run all the way down until the computer shuts off automatically.

Once the battery has fully drained, you can charge it back up again and restore your screensaver and power management settings.
