I have a Lenovo Thinkpad T500 with Windows 7 Enterprise (n). Even though my laptop is docked (or plugged in), there is a battery meter to the left of the system tray:

I'd like to turn that off if possible. Has anyone else been able to do that?

Which battery meter? The Power Manager one or the default one? The default one can be turned off in the customization of the notification icons. Right click on Taskbar -> properties -> Notification area: Customize -> At the bottom Turn system .... There you go.

If you talk about the Power manager one. Click with left mouse button on the gauge. Options tab. Show power manager gauge...
