Bummer :(

How will I know if my laptop battery is about to run out?

Can you do:

cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT#/*

? Replace # with 0 or 1.

That's how I keep an eye on my battery on my old Thinkpad because it
reports incorrectly, so it tries to shutdown with 50% power so I have
to kill powersaved to keep using it.

I open a small terminal and use watch with the above command.

Thanks Larry,

That will work in the interim until we get a fix in Trinity. Robert, you
know anything about this in Trinity?

Yes, hence the move to upower upcoming as soon as cmake is done.



You da man... :p
