There are several software patches which can have an effect on battery usage:
Look for Compaq Power Management
Systems Enhancement Disk,
Compaq Notebooks Battery Test Utility
Intel SpeedStep Technology Applet
and maybe the BIOS.
You can run it without a battery.

The computer actually dies when the battery gets too low, and this is while it its docked. The dock greenlight is on, amber laptop light flashing.
I have re-installed the software paqs, including dock. Its dropped dead now several times. I think the problem is with the Armada Station. Problem is same with both another battery as well as another M700 laptop.
