Power LED / Charging LED Question
#1
Hi - I've noticed what I think is somewhat unusual behaviour in my 14 inch Pinebook.  When I plug the adapter in, the orange charging light doesn't light up to let me know that the machine is charging - at least not until I've done a couple of things.  

When the machine is shut down and I plug the adapter in, I get no orange led.

When I open the pinebook up, I get a brief flash of what looks like a battery charging icon but the LED stay unlit.

When I start the pinebook, the LED lights up orange and stays lit after I shut the machine down - until it is fully charged and the LED goes off.

Is this normal?  Has anybody else experienced this?

Hi all,

Would it be possible for Pinebook v1.1 to switch places between power-plug and charge led.

Then the charger cable will not block the charge led.  Smile


thx

Does the battery charge, when the Pinebook is shut down and the power-plug is inserted then? (No light = no charching?)
