I recently upgraded to 13.10 from 12.10. It's now showing the battery info wrong and it keeps turning off even with 60% of power remaining, and without warning. When I resboot the PC, it works fine for 30 minutes or so and then the same thing over again.

I didn't had this problem with 12.10. Also, I have installed TLP, but that's not helping either.

The hardware:

  • PC: HP 2000-2116tu
  • CPU: Intel i5 (3rd generation)
  • Graphics: Intel HD4000
  • 1
    Please add more information about your hardware by editing your question. PC model? CPU? Graphics card? – edwin Mar 19 '14 at 13:10
  • Notice that it might be a problem with the battery (it might be failing). Do you dual-boot with Windows? If so, do you have the same problem while running Windows? Under the battery indicator (top right little battery icon), I think there's an option to see some battery statistics. – edwin Mar 19 '14 at 18:52
  • ya , I use to dual boot and it gives about 2.5 hrs of backup in windows. – Piyush Kumar Mar 20 '14 at 8:43

make sure you haven't changed anything in power settings.

  • your "when power is critically low" shows blank but mine have power off and hibernate. Rest of the settings are same . – Piyush Kumar Mar 19 '14 at 17:04
