Makes sense to me, if the battery is low or is depleting quickly then
updating your system may leave the computer on an unstable state.
I bet that zypper sucks seriously the battery (I/O + cpu).

Subject: [opensuse-factory] Beta 3 shows won't update on Battery?

Well, this is a new one. I've got Beta3 installed on my Thinkpad
390X. It's got a really long life battery. It's currently at about
60% remaining. When I restored the kde taskbar updater, I got this
message:

Unable to check whether updates are available.

The system is on battery. Please connect a power supply.

Ok, why is this? I'm not "allowed" to update if I am running on
battery? Shouldn't that be MY choice???

Thanx
