It takes some time after the change in state for it to actually reflect in the Unity Panel. upower -m also has the same delay to update.

I have tried reinstalling upower and gnome-power-manager according to this answer using the following commands:

sudo apt-get purge upower gnome-power-manager  
sudo apt-get install  upower gnome-power-manager

Does anyone know to solve this and make it responsive?

  • How much time does it take to reflect a power change? – heynnema Dec 4 '16 at 23:53
  • @heynnema that is also highly inconsistent. Sometimes it reflects in 1-2 seconds and sometimes in takes a lot more. – Sandeep C Dec 5 '16 at 7:13
  • Sounds kind of normal to me. – heynnema Dec 5 '16 at 14:36

    @heynnema 1-2 seconds is normal indeed. But, usually it take longer time, even a minute at times. – Sandeep C Dec 5 '16 at 18:52
  • I can't tell you. Maybe somebody else will chime in. – heynnema Dec 5 '16 at 20:35
