Description Douglas Kilpatrick 2009-07-26 17:56:42 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):

How reproducible:

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.
Actual results:
One battery is still full, one is empty.

Expected results:
Both batteries are empty, and the laptop stayed running longer.
