I woke up in the middle of the night and my room was lit up by that message on the phone. I thought it was because I had downloaded a battery monitor application. I didn't hear a "beep", but the ring volume was set to 0 and I was asleep.
I'm trying to get the phone back to 100% again, but it seems that it must take several hours of being plugged in continuously to trickle all the way up; it still hasn't reached 100%, today.
This issue makes keeping the phone on the nightstand impractical, as it's simply too bright when that notification is on screen. (If the notification can't be disabled or rooted away, I'll be returning the two "media" docks that I purchased on launch day since I have no other use for them.)

Yeah I have noticed that the Epic prompts you to remove the charger when it becomes fully charged. Which I think is stupid. Say you charge it before you go to bed, then it is fully charged at like 3am. Then when you wake up at like 7, the battery would have gone down, and you have to start your day at whever the percentage is at...

I too find this INCREDIBLY ANNOYING. It has woken me up in the middle of the night. Complete idiocy. I can't find a setting anywhere, I wonder if it can be hacked.
I googled it and it seems there is a history of this with Samsung phones too:

That explains why I've never heard it before. Also, I don't think it disengages the connect.
dvdqnoc: unless I misunderstood your point, I don't think it disengages the power source just because its finished charging.It should continue to stay at 100% until you remove it from the charger. That's been my experience anyay.
