gnome-power-manager triggers shutdown while second battery is still on 100%
Last modified: 2009-07-28 07:03:54 EDT
Description of problem:
Happen on a Dell Lattitude D620 laptop with a second battery. gnome-power-manager triggers shutdown in case of the second battery runs empty while second battery is still on 100%.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F11 version, laptop is currently powered off...
At least one time
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put in second battery
2. Let laptop run
Both batteries are recognized, the internal one keeps 100% while the second one is used. In case this battery runs out of power, an automatic shutdown is triggered.
Trigger of automatic shutdown only in case of both batteries are running empty.
Have you tried the DeviceKit-power and gnome-power-manager in updates testing? Thanks.
Hmm, looks like I have already the latest ones, neither --enablerepo updates-testing nor --enablerepo rawhide shows me newer packages
# grep power /var/log/yum.log
May 25 22:04:16 Installed: DeviceKit-power-008-0.1.20090401git.fc11.i586
May 25 22:05:01 Updated: gnome-power-manager-2.26.1-3.fc11.i586
# rpm -qa |grep power
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 11 development cycle.
Changing version to '11'.
More information and reason for this action is here:
Looks like versions from updates-testing fix this problem:
But still a strange message was displayed according to that the system runs out of battery, some minutes later gnome-power-manager recognized, that the second battery is now used. Perhaps this can be improved somehow, e.g. displaying 2 battery symbol (or one symbol containing 2 batteries).
I'm seeing this two on my Dell D620 laptop. What's even worse - if one battery is out of juice, even if the laptop is on AC power, after login g-p-m reports that the battery is low and turns off the machine .. but I'm on AC!
