Windows 7: Plugged in, but running off battery..

Plugged in, but running off battery..

Ok, before I start, I'm POSITIVE this is not a hardware issue, because when I'm in Ubuntu, it doesn't happen.

Every 10 seconds or so, Windows will think my charger is unplugged. Then, it will proceed to switch back and fourth between plugged in and not, forcing my laptop to switch between power modes. (I'm guessing this is stress on the CPU and I do not want it to have to do that all the time)

It's getting annoying having to deal with my laptop getting hot and such because of the switching power modes.

Any ideas..?

I presume you dual boot? Are you using the battery charger in the same socket as you do when you are booted to Ubuntu?

I dual boot Ubuntu and Win 7. Same charger, same port. This is definitely one of the weirder issues I've faced.
