So I have an ACER Aspire laptop that is currently running a fresh install of Linux Mint, but has had this problem with Windows as well.
After leaving plunged in for an extended period of time (over night) AND/OR just leaving it sit there for an extended it will require that the battery reset button be pressed with a paper clip.
The battery remains at full charge though this process.
I have tested the power adapter with a volt meter and I'm getting 41V which is way higher than the 19V on the side of the adapter. Is this part of the issue?
