    -What is the model of laptop? What Operating system?
    -How old is the laptop? How old is the battery?
    -When this occurs what is the % of charging as shown on battery icon?Has it reached 100%
    -Did the laptop and OS come with any bundled software to control the battery behavior, if yes explore any specific settings therein

    Things to try
    1. Explore if the behavior is exactly the same by running a Live linux distribution off the CD/DVD/USB (Assuming you are on Windows)
    2. Check if there's any option to calibrate the battery in UEFI/BIOS and follow the same
    3. If not, try manually calibrating the battery by full discharge and full charge once
    4. If you are on Windows, go to Device Manager and Uninstall Microsoft ACPI Compliant Battery under Batteries option. Windows will recreate this device upon boot.
    5. On Windows use a free software like BatteryInfoView to check the overall health & wear level of the battery.

    Most modern laptops cut the charger after the battery becomes full so as to not overcharge it.

    ^^what are you saying?I have never seen a fully working laptop that does not display "plugged in" sign/symbol while adapter is connected & getting power from AC Mains.Only status change is from "charging" to "fully charged".
