In Ubuntu 10.10 and 11.04 my Dell mini 9 starts to discharge and run off of battery very soon after it is fully charged while it's still plugged into the the power adapter. If I restart it still doesn't see the AC adapter. If I shutdown and cold boot it will start charging again until the battery is full and the circle begins a new. It started happening at some point with 10.10 and I just now am getting around to doing something about it.
The mini 9 is running it's latest BIOS A07. I opened the thing up to check for loose charger connections and everything looks good. Is there a different power management driver I can try? Is there a power management log I can check somewhere?
EDIT: What libraries do I roll back and lock to 10.04 or up to 11.10? I'd like to keep with 11.04 if possible until 11.10 is officially released.
