Sometimes mine doesn't show fully charged but it is!

Press and hold the battery icon for around 5 - 10 seconds and a screen will open with a lot of info on and when plugged in it will tell you if its charged or charging
Is there any way to get out of that mode besides power-cycling the device?
I have, if you press the exit button at bottom, it will exit that mode, but it takes a few seconds, and then it reboots so I'm guessing it is similar in action, but at least you're not forcing it out of that mode.

Incidentally guys, when it's charging it shows slightly different info to that when it's on battery:
Charging: shows charge current,
Pull the charge lead out and it will show battery voltages and percentage battery (without percent symbol)

That's weird, because when I first got the unit, those three buttons on the bottom were all tan in colour with the words visible in white, now they are permanently white!

I wonder if a software update has changed it!

@Stu, I updated software as soon as I got the machine and not since. Unless of course, it can do it's own updating without my knowing...
