Opposite Response on Power Event

Bug #231278 reported by Melk79 on 2008-05-17
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
gnome-power-manager (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

Ubuntu 8.04 LTS, Kernel Linux 2.6.24-16-generic, Gnome-Power-Manager 2.22.1

Power events cause the opposite response from selected settings under System>Preferences>Power Management

- Icon in top panel is always correct (e.g. power cord when plugged in, battery when not) However, if you hold the cursor over the icon when battery is displayed, message returns "Computer is running on AC power"

- Unplug power the screen brightens and the screen blanks on lid close. This matches the power settings for "On AC power"

- Plug the power back in the screen dims and the computer sleeps on lid close. This matches the power settings for "On Battery Power"

This behavior began after an update that performed the following in SPM:
