No low battery alerts.

Bug #222843 reported by Jonholio on 2008-04-27
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Since upgrading to Ubuntu 8.04 I no longer get warnings when my laptop battery is running low. The power applet reports the correct state (charging|discharging) and the correct charge percentage, but the warnings and shutdown|suspend|hibernate don't get triggered. I have round that /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/alarm says "alarm: unsupported" so this may not be a problem specifically with gnome-power-manager? What information will help debug this problem? This was not a problem with Ubuntu 7.10. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
