This does provide exactly what I need:
You can set the lower limit to drop to before starting charge and set an upper limit so that the battery does not charge all the way.
ThinkWiki suggests 40% and 85% as limits but I usually charge upto 95% on my T60.
Unfortunately, the Thinkpad Edge is not supported :(
I installed tp_smapi from the source in the Ubuntu 10.04 repos and used the module asistant to install it but none of the sys devices can read the addresses. According to tp_smapi only standard thinkpads are currently supported.
I wonder if you can accomplish this with home made scripts using the 'standard' proc and sys interfaces? I have not looked into this.
Thanks for the tip anyway!
By the way, ThinkWiki refers to a package called gnome-hdasp-applet which can be used in conjunction with the hdaspd daemon which is a Thinkpad specific tool to monitor the accelerometer in the laptop to determine when a shock occurs and when to park the heads of the disc drive (Active Protection System in Thinkpad speek).
This package does not exist in the repos and I wondered if it has been merged into the power manager applet?

There is no upstream kernel support for this. There is a out-of-tree

module that does some of what you describe, see
