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.
