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 opening gconf-editor. Then browse to
/apps/gnome-power-manager/general. and de-select the option
But that doesn't work with 11.10. I have also searched and can't find a solution. Anyone?
