video of the laptop shutting down. the video starts right before ac power is unplugged.
Description of problem: i'm using kernel 220.127.116.11-170.2.24.fc10.x86_64 in fedora 10. my computer is an hp pavilion dv7 notebook model pavilion dv7-1174ca. when the computer has been booted and is running on ac power and i unplug the computer from the ac source the power manager icon in my notification area disappears after several minutes. also, if i try to shut down with either my power button or the shut down option in the system menu it takes about 2 minutes for the shutdown dialogue to appear. when it does appear the suspend and hibernation options are not visible. after this shut down proceeds as expected. if ac power is reconnected the power manager icon does not re-appear and shutdowns continue to be slow

Don't know. But its definitely not a powerman problem, which is the component you originally filed this and another bug under (powerman is a utility for managing switched power distribution units). I believe you meant gnome-power-manager. From there, could turn out to be a kernel thing, dunno.
Still happens with F11?
This message is a reminder that Fedora 10 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 10. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '10'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 10's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 10 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this
bug to the applicable version. If you are unable to change the version,
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
The process we are following is described here:
Fedora 10 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-12-17. Fedora 10 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
