Last modified: 2008-04-29 17:00:46 EDT
Description of problem:
Popup title: Error while prepare Suspend to RAM - KPowersave
Popup message: Could not umount external media before suspend/standby. (Reason:
Could not call DCOP interface to umount external media.) Would you like to
continue suspend/standby anyway? (Warning: Continue suspend can cause data loss!)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
kpowersave.x86_64 0.7.3-1.fc8 installed
When battery power reaches a warning level
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Unplug laptop
2. Wait for battery power to get to a warning level
3. Popup. Computer shuts off when battery dies if no action taken.
this was recently fixed/patched in rawhide (see bug #426666),
probably ought to issue an update for f7/f8.
