While the power cord is plugged in: my ASUS G71G laptop thinks that the power cord is unplugged then plugged back in for some reason.  Which I would not even notice but the laptop switches power settings to the battery ones which freezes the computer for a second, lowers my brightness, etc and doesnt switch it back.  It also puts up the "Battery Mode" message in the middle of my screen. 

How do I tell the laptop to wait untill the power cord is unplugged for 5 seconds before it switches to battery mode.  Or how can I tell it to never switch to "battery mode"?  I switched all the power settings in windows so that they are the same in battery mode and AC mode.  But an ASUS app. is overriding it.

You can't, unless you can answer this question:

How do I tell a fish to wait 5 days dry in the desert, before we can find some water?

Remove the battery from your laptop! Without the batteries it can't switch to battery mode!!!

You've got to edit the power settings on the ASUS Power4Gear app, not in Windows.

I realize that I have to change the setting in the asus app.  How?  That is my question.  Removing the battery is not a good solution.  If the power to the laptop fluctuates it may just shut down and removing my battery every time I plug it in is going to get annoying.

Ya, I still have the same problem and no help from ASUS or the forums. I know that ATKOS2.exe and ATKOS.exe are the programs that show the notifications on your screen. But they are not the ones that actually change the settings.

Please pay attention:

The Power4Gear is the software you want to use to setup Power Management settings (when to shutdown screen / harddisks, display brightness and stuff!).

The only way your notebook will not use the battery if the power fails for 1+ second is not having a battery on the first place!

Perhaps you do not wanna see the solution you're looking at, do you?
