You shouldn't need to do anything special to make it charge from your 
laptop, assuming you're using a new kernel, unless you're hitting a new 
bug.  Forcing fast charge mode worked around bugs in older kernels, but 
  is now mostly just a dangerous hack for strange/broken hardware setups.

I'm charging mine via a laptop usb port as I type this, and didn't force 
a charging mode.  The included 1000ma charger is faster, but the laptop 
also charges the battery.
