RE: [34S] battery warning indicator / question
Thank you Marcus.

What do you think about latching the battery icon? My thinking is that once the battery icon illuminates, the user is constantly reminded of the need to replace them, even if the need is not imminent the very first time it appears.

It would then be up to the user to decide upon a reasonable period of time, given prior personal experience using the calculator in its usual manner, for which he knows replacement can be put off. For example, when the battery alert first appears on my HP 50g, I know I have at least a few days to replace them, given my normal work habits.

The latch bit could conceivably be a user-accessible flag, unless there is a leftover bit you know of that could serve the purpose.

I was also wondering if the battery icon could be illuminated for a minimum amount of time (some number of seconds or minutes), but that might require relying upon the real time clock which not all users will have.

Just a thought. If I knew how to do it myself I would have done so already!
