Description John Cagle 2000-08-06 23:56:17 EDT
GNOME Battery Monitor Applet 1.2.1 issues spurious low battery alerts even when AC is ON.

Applet normally shows accurate battery level (e.g. 96%), but will occasionally dip down to 0% and issue an alert.

This happens on a Compaq Armada M700 laptop.

I can't reproduce this on a Micron Transport. Wanna send me an Armada ;-)
Comment 2 Jonathan Blandford 2001-07-09 19:46:59 EDT
While this is more likely a kernel problem, can you try with
gnome-applets- and see if it is still there with the new battery applet?
Comment 3 John Cagle 2001-07-09 20:30:47 EDT
I'll try this when I get a chance, but it's low priority...

The values come from the BIOS
