Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 221350
Laptop suspends when first of two batteries is drained.

Description of problem:
I have an IBM t42p with two batteries: the normal one plus one in the device
bay. The IBM shows the drive bay battery as draining first, going to zero, and
then shows the regular battery draining. The power applet properly shows the
two batteries and shows the first one draining while the second one stays at
100%. The problem is that when the drive bay battery drains to 0% the power
manager applet puts the machine to sleep even though it shows the second battery
at 100%. When I resume the machine the drive bay battery is at zero and the
normal battery is below 100% and all works normally when the normal battery
finally drains and the applet puts the machine to sleep.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
always when one battery drains to zero.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start with a notebook with two batteries at 100%
2. Run the computer until the first battery drains to zero.
PM forces the machine to suspend when first battery drains to zero
PM should wait until all the batteries are low.
