Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 476394
System fails to hibernate when battery exhausted
Last modified: 2008-12-16 22:05:06 EST
Description of problem:
power manager is set to hibernate when the battery is about to run out. Instead the system continues to run until it fails.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Unknown - I don't make a habit of letting my laptop crash in this manner.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.set power manager to hibernate when battery is critical
2.let battery run down
system runs at full power until failure
system enters hibernate
Is the battery discharge time accurate? Does the battery scale down to 0% or does the machine turn off at 10%?
The battery discharge time always seems to be "estimated," but the time is accurate. The system lets the battery run down right past the point where the battery light on the front starts blinking to indicate critical level, but then the system continues to run all the way down to 0%.
the battery time is no longer estimated, and this time i did get a warning, this computer will hibernate in two minutes.. it didn't do it for another 8 minutes, but it did do it so i'm not worried about that delay if you're not.. otherwise I consider this closed...
