Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 513883
Gnome Power Manager does the wrong thing in two battery laptops
Last modified: 2009-07-28 07:03:01 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a laptop with two batteries in it. Both batteries are visible to the power manager applet. If I mouse over the applet, both percentages show. But when one battery run out of juice (It's quite old, and holds around 5 minutes of power), gnome-power-manager paniced and turned off the computer.
Also, the icon is showing the percentage of one battery, not the percentage of the combined batteries.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put both batteries in laptop.
2. Turn laptop on.
3. Leave laptop running until it turns itsself off
4. Check charge levels on both batteries.
One battery is still full, one is empty.
Both batteries are empty, and the laptop stayed running longer.
