Rrtdj, you're my idol. Thank you so much!
I've replaced the battery in my T60 today, as the "genuine" Lenovo one genuinely stopped working and would in fact make the laptop freeze randomly (yet another testament to the Lenovo quality: the previous battery was also faulty, of the exploding kind) and suddenly I got this ridiculous, nagging message with the perpetual exclamation mark in the tray because I dared to use an "unauthorized" battery. "Unauthorized" is it really, Lenovo? I paid for this laptop, it is my property, and I authorized myself to do whatever I want with it.
Anyway, all of this is now gone, thanks to your patch. For anyone in need, here's the link to the last patchable version (3.61):http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc ... u408ww.exe
The patch does a great job for the tray, but it does not remove the message in the Power Manager window. The message is saved in the file (typically, for US English):
The message is located in String Table 45, and its ID is 709.
The file can be edited with XN Resource Editor, a free utility available from:http://www.wilsonc.demon.co.uk/d10resourceeditor.htm
I have changed the message in my file to:
"You have made the right choice not purchasing a genuine Lenovo battery. In the recent years, hundreds of thousands of genuine Lenovo batteries have been recalled due to quality issues. Some of them have even been known to ignite spontaneously, which could cause human injury and damage to property."
Thank you again, Rrtdj!
