    Hi all,
    Although I charge my battery to full (from 10%) at least once or twice a month, I have just noticed that when I go into Settings/General/Time since last full charge, Usage and Standby are greyed out. Any ideas why that is please?

    Oh, and by the way, I cannot get the smileys to show, they just show as little outlined squares or in text.

    The problem with the smileys is not just you, it's forum wide. For some reason they no longer show in the website view of the forum but do show in the app view.

    What do you mean by grayed out?

    Usually grayed out means the text is gray, to indicate it can not be changed. Since the Time Since Last Charge is generated automatically you can not change it. The time text is always gray.

    If it's something else, a screen shot might be helpful.

    Barcamad, do you mean that instead of seeing numbers there, there are only dotted lines, perchance? That happened to me either the first or second time I charged my Air, but since then, it's displayed the numbers correctly.

    Hi guys, thank you very much for your input. In answer to your question Elux72, yes, there were dotted lines or at least a line. I have found out what happened however. For the last few months I haven't used Battery Doctor and when I wanted to fully charge, I ran the battery down to 10% or less then left it to charge to 100%. Fine so far but what I didn't do was allow a trickle charge. In other words, although showing 100% charged the iPad had not fully completed the cycle. For example, I used Battery Doctor for the first time in ages and charged overnight. Got up this morning and saw 100% showing so was about to disconnect when I decided to actually open Battery Doctor app. Lo and behold it told me that it was trickle charging and 15 minutes remained. Left it to complete and now shows a full cycle charge! Job done, matter resolved, operator error! I really must have more faith but I absolutely loathe Technology, the necessary evil.
    Thanks again,
    Mike
