Your battery was only lasting 30 minutes before this so it was on it's last legs anyway.
Is the laptop under warranty?

I shut all power options off, and disabled battery reporting.
I was getting ready for the system to shutdown unexpectedly over 20min ago, but the system is still running with battery showing an even 7% and 1 minute of life.
It has been over an hour now, and system is still running.
