For my notebook, in addition to the main battery I've got a
secondary that I uses when traveling.
In generally things work fine, except when openSUSE 13.1/GNOME
decide to shoot me in my foot. :-)
When the secondary battery drains, and the system switches to
back to the primary while I work, everything is fine.
When I then suspend-to-RAM and wake up again, I get a pop up
indicating that my battery (singular) is running low and the
system will be shut down.
/proc/acpi/battery/BAT*/* and the battery indicator in the status
panel (upper right corner of the screen) both indicate that I have
hours to go.
Still, within seconds a shutdown of the system is initiated without
me having any change to stop.
Soo, two questions:
- How can we get this fixed properly such that whatever is deciding
my battery is running low actually uses the same source of information
as the status indicator (which gets it right)?
- As a stop gap measure, but generally: How can I avoid such a forced
shutdown? Frankly, I'd rather let the system run out of battery than
anything being force on my.
