When I'm charging my my notebook (Sony Vaio E series) and after I've removed the AC adapter since the charge is complete, the battery always shown that "fully charged" so I have write a script to manually do this every time:

us=`id -u`
if [ $us != 0 ] ; then
echo "non sei root"
exit 1
killall upowerd
(/usr/lib/upower/upowerd 1>/dev/null) &

But this is very annoying...there is an alternative? (like update udev/upower ecc)?

OP are you still looking for an answer? If so, you may need to repost your question as this is marked for closure. Regards, – Ringtail Apr 7 '12 at 19:22

You don't give any information of the version you are running so I will assume it is 11.10. Have you recently upgraded all your packages specifically the package indicator-power

The latest version is 0.9-0Ubuntu-2 which has fixed some bugs. More details can be found at Ubuntu Updates

There is some indicator issues with the battery indicator on 11.10 and many of these have been fixed in 12.04
