    Hi Guys,

    Is it possible to get windows to read to me the battery life from OSX, or can I run some kind of app that will post it in the Guest VM for me. Would be very handy for when I'm travelling and am using one of my virtual machines.

    Cheers,
    ~Chris

    I submitted this request to Parallels quite a while ago. From what I understand, the emulated BIOS Parallels provides to the guest OSes does not include APM so none of the battery related items will work in the guest OSes. Real bummer when running on battery with guest OS in full screen mode. You can't see the battery getting low.

    I believe I also saw a mention that this may be added in the future release.

    Rick

    Sounds like a good tk/tcl over IP project.
