HP Spectre x360 Convertible 15-ch002ng
I got two major issues with this laptop when using an external monitor (when the laptop gets the role of a desktop PC):
1. The laptop doesn't power on if the lid is closed.
Even if the monitor is connected via USB Type-C and the laptop's battery is charging, the power button doesn't work. I understand that this is made intentionally to prevent it from powering on somewhere in a backpack, but it cannot be found in a backpack (or somewhere else) if it is standing on the desk and the external monitor is connected. Kindly enable it for the above described conditions. Please no suggestions "like open the lid, power on and close it" or "leave the lid open all the time". Not serious for a model with the price tag of 2000€.
2. There is no way to limit the battery charge on 50 or 80%. The battery care option is missing in the latest BIOS Setup.
This laptop is planned to be used mainly as a replacement of a desktop PC (90% of all time) with an option of a seldom takeaways (remaining 10%). That means it will stay connected to a power supply and the battery will be constantly kept charged to 100%. It's widely known how quick Lithium-Ion batteries degrade when stored fully charged and I don't want to end up replacing the battery after a year or two because it has permanently lost most of its capacity. This also doesn't help protecting our environment from "used" batteries which could "last" significantly longer. Kindly enable this option in the BIOS Setup or somewhere else. Please no suggestions like "leave it fully charged - nothing happens", or "this option is not available on consumer laptops", or "let it run on the battery sometimes" - not serious for a model with the price tag of 2000€.
Thank you in advance & best regards.

It seems to me, that the real message from you behind this polite sht is simply "Go away". Got it and just went away from HP to the competitors. I will also tell my friends and colleagues about this experience so they won't repeat my mistake of buying something from your company. Cheers!
