To answer my own question - I looked at the suggestions at:


but didn't get anywhere - then I found I could boot the FR on the 
charger and then quickly swap the the charger cable with the USB cable 
to the PC before the FR turned off!  Once the FR was connected to the PC 
it would slowly charge! (where it wouldn't connected to the charger).

Tomorrow (when the FR is hopefully fully charged) I will look at the 
WiFi uptime stuff again . .
