Description Andreas Thienemann 2009-07-07 06:03:48 EDT
Description of problem:
Even when a notebook is plugged in gpm tries to act on battery events.

e.g. notebook has run out of power completely over the night. In the morning the machine is plugged into the power socket and started.
At the gdm screen a notification bubble pops up informing the user that the battery is nearly empty and the computer will shut down now.


Similar problems do happen later during the charging process, e.g. telling the user that the battery power is getting low...

This problem has been experienced on three different notebooks, a hp nx5000, a Lenovo S10e and a Dell E4200 which makes me believe that it is not a hardware related problem...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Wait until Battery is drained and system powers off
2. Plug in power
3. Start the system
4. Wait for gdm to power down the system due to low battery
5. ???
6. Don't profit!
Actual results:
System down

Expected results:
System up

I can confirm that this still happens with the above packages.
Comment 3 Richard Hughes 2009-08-20 08:05:52 EDT
Does installing the latest gnome-power-manager and DeviceKit-power packages in updates-testing (and then rebooting...) fix the problem?
Comment 4 Bug Zapper 2010-04-27 11:31:25 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 11 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 11.  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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '11'.

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 11'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 11 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: 
Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2010-06-28 09:30:23 EDT
Fedora 11 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-06-25. Fedora 11 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.
