    you cant - as the %age goes down the current supplied by the battery goes up

    shutting down suspends the programs running so it stops the laptop taking so much current 

     plugging it in to recharge the battery will allow it to start up again and restart where it left off with whatever you were doing

    going less than 5% there is a substantial risk it will just shut down completely with no warning, and you will lose everything you were doing cos the computer wont be able to save anything in time, and could probably corrupt the files you were working on

    (if you have  a desk top you use a lot creating/editing important files its a good idea you get a UPS and one with a "shut down" connection to the computer

     if there is a power cut the UPS supplies mains power for a while (depending on the UPS) but when its batteries start to run out it shuts down the computer automatically thus preserving your work

      your laptop is doing the same thing

    This is normal behaviour, you can’t change it.
