Shutdown plugging in empty battery while on AC power
Last modified: 2009-08-21 12:09:30 EDT
Description of problem:
My laptop has 2 batteries, when one of them drains Fedora decides to shutdown the laptop even while on AC power.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
3 times in a row
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in Power
2. Take an empty 2nd battery , plug it in
3. See machine detect low battery power and shutdown
It's on AC power so I expect
A. It not to shut down for safety when the battery goes empty
B. Realize it has a 2nd battery anyhow
C. Go on as normal and let the battery charge.
This only happened after my fresh F11 installation .. I never had the problem on F10
I have a similar problem: when I boot up the machine with a drained
battery, g-p-m will shut it down, even though it is on mains power.
Apparently the current version of g-p-m does only trigger the shut
down rule in accordance with battery level, it doesn't take into account
that a stable AC mains power source is available.
It needs to be amended to not shut down the system when it's on
This should be fixed properly in rawhide. See my blog for more information about how multi-battery laptops are handled.
