I have an MSI Wind U100 netbook (they call it a notebook). Every time I unplug the AC adapter the machine shuts down as if the battery is dead. I get a notification that says "battery is critical and is about to shut down" or something to that sense. It did this before but I fixed it by doing
Current workaround is to open gconf-editor and browse to: /apps/gnome-power-manager/general And de-select the option use_time_for_policy
but that doesn't work with 11.10. I have also searched and can't find a solution. Anyone?
