  1. I was at work the other day and saw a guy who had a nice toolbar next to the system tray on his laptop that had a bar with his battery life. I thought it was pretty nice considering I'm always using up my battery since the default battery icon is so tiny in the system tray. I can't figure out how to turn it on though. I looked like his machine was running either Win98 or 2000, my machine is running Win2000. If you know how to activate this bar let me know.

    Control Panel / Power Options.
    You can set the power icon to be displayed in the system tray at all times if you wish. Not sure what icon you are referring to as this is the default one.... :confused:
