    I looked before and couldn't find any software that would stop the charging and/or start the charging at certain levels.
    Now I use the free BatteryCare as mentioned before

    You can see in the image that you can set notifications to whatever levels you like, 50% > 75% is my at home levels where charging is easy to do.
    I decided on 50% > 75% after reading the following article
    How to Prolong Lithium-based Batteries - Battery University
    When I'm going to be away from home I charge to 95% and just use the T100 as I need to

    If you are playing a game I doubt that the visual pop-up notification will work especially if you are in full screen, it doesn't for me when watching a video.
    The sound notification might work, it does for me when watching a video, but if the game sound is loud you might not hear it.

    Read more @ BatteryCare
    BatteryCare has a Portable version (which I use) so you can try it without installing anything.
    Click on Download
    Click on More Download Options
    Select Portable Version

    The only other solution I can think of is to establish how much your battery discharges per minute while in use and how long it takes to charge while in use and while in Sleep or Off
    You could get the information using the free BatteryInfo View which will keep a log of your battery charge state. It is also Portable
    BatteryInfoView - View battery information on laptops / netbooks
    Then get a power point (wall plug) timer that is easy and quick to program, they are very cheap
    Example only: While in Sleep mode your battery charges at 20% per hour, so, if your battery is at 40% and you want to charge to 80% set the power point timer to 2 hours etc, etc

    I assume you unplug and run the device on battery when it gets to the desired charge level. Than plug it back in when it is low. This raises a interesting and hard to answer question. Is it better to charge to 100% and use it (producing heat next to the battery while full), or add extra charge cycles to the battery?

    Best to read the info at Battery University I linked to
    The shorter the discharge (low DoD), the longer the battery will last. If at all possible, avoid full discharges and charge the battery more often between uses.
