    Problem Number 1
    Recently I realized that my laptop's low battery notification doesn't appear at all, so I thought I had accidentally toggled it off.

    Went to Google to search for help, then I went into the specific part of Power Options to toggle on my low battery notification. However, I saw that my low battery notification has already been toggled on. So I thought, probably I reset the defaults, it might help.

    Today, the same thing happened again. There was no low battery notification and my laptop went into hibernate mode due to low power. Restart my laptop and went to Power Options again. I still see the low battery notification as "on"

    How come this is happening ?

    Problem Number 2
    The battery icon at my tray states 50% (somewhere there) available, but yet my laptop auto goes into sleep mode, and when I switch on my charger and load my laptop and check, the battery icon shows 5% (can't remember, but it is some % below 8%) available (plugged in, charging)

    How come this happen ?

    My laptop is Acer Aspire
