is there a way to monitor battery live in a laptop?




My remote probe is a small laptop closed in the basestation cabinet monitoring some hardware. I need to be able to check in the power is still connected to it. Is that possible over WMI?

There is a Win32_Battery WMI class that should allow you to monitor the battery resources via a Custom WMI sensor (using the respective WQL query).
