I’ve been running Fedora 13 beta on my laptop for quite a while. But I haven’t been able to figure out what causes this scenario. It happens after a suspend/resume cycle. The battery popup clearly shows 7 hours + remaining, but the percentage and the icon are completely wrong.
Running acpi yields more accurate information:
[jesusr@speed3 ~]$ acpi -b Battery 0: Discharging, 81%, 06:25:37 remaining
and acpitool shows the following:
[jesusr@speed3 ~]$ acpitool -B Battery #1 : present Remaining capacity : 7479 mAh, 81.01%, 07:09:00 Design capacity : 9324 mAh Last full capacity : 9232 mAh, 99.01% of design capacity Capacity loss : 0.9867% Present rate : 1046 mA Charging state : discharging Battery type : rechargeable Model number : 42T4799 Serial number : 6034
Could it be we have the decimal point in the wrong place? Seems like it should be 82% in the screenshot instead of 8.2%. Has this bug been fixed? If not, what package should I file the bug against? If you need a test user I’ll be happy to test it 🙂
