Windows 7: critical battery sound volume level?

critical battery sound volume level?

i have critical battery sound set on my laptop to turn on at 10% and then 7% and shut the computer down at 5% if i do not do anything about it. problem is, sometimes i have the volume real low or off and dont hear it. is it possible (in windows, not an external program, although i will look to externals if not) to set the volume at a standard when the critical alarm goes off? in example, my laptop is at volume 2, then it hits critical level of 10% battery left, i want the computer to automatically bump up the volume to 20 or 30 depending on what i choose. kinda nit picky i know, but hell i know it can be done, if not in windows surely someone can recommend a good program. thanks to everyone who takes time to read and reply. -n00b

You would need a special program just for that function, that whenever it needs to report the battery condition it would also raise the volume level. I've never seen anything like that. Have you tried doing a google search?

You may be able to set something in task scheduler:
Condition = low power
action = Volume = %75
Action = play sound, or display on screen message
Action = Sound normal volume

Im not sure if you can set a condition like that but it could work.

I believe that there is a program that instead of a tray notification, which I miss all the time, it gives you a large pop up. **searches the internet**

Disable automatic suspend on critical battery level
When my laptop is on critical battery level it suspends automatically. How do I avoid that? I want it to run until the battery is completely empty. Yes, I know I may lose data and damage the laptop; I do not care. I know the answer is somewhere around the POWERCFG utility but that thing is way...

battery level window
IN the past, I was able to have the battery level display open continuously. In W7, I can't figure out how to do this. I've found a gadget which displays battery, but it also displays other things that I'm not interested in having take up space.
