Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

today i woke my laptop from sleep and upon seeing that the remaining battery had only 20 minutes left (so the power manager applet was running fine) i plugged the charger...

then i saw the gnome-power-manager using 100% cpu and the applet completely disappeared (after terminating gpm even firefox got stuck in a similar way, so i'm not sure of this being a suspend/resume issue or a gpm issue)

i'm not sure if it can be replicated easily

i have another problem with the gpm notify applet after wake up... i'm unsure if i should report a new bug about it...

the applet is present, but it doesn't get updated with the right values (this time it see a low battery value when it's in fact at about 80%... another time it happened the other way round: it saw the battery still being connected to the powerline when in fact it was discharging)

however this time there isn't an unusual cpu usage, and the estimate time remaining seems correct (and is thus incosistent with the reported battery charge)

i'll attach a screenshot (italian locale, but it roughly says: "Notebook battery, 1 hour and 30 minutes remaining (3,4%)") and do an apport-collect

(i'd love to have such a uber-battery :D but unfortunately i don't know how to reproduce this bug...)

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of GNOME Power Manager is available on Maverick and we are wondering if this bug is still an issue for you with that version? Could you please test and comment back? Thanks in advance.

There have been many changes in Ubuntu since that time you reported the bug and your problem may have been fixed with some of the updates. Could test the current Ubuntu version? It would help us greatly if you could test with it so we can work on getting it fixed in the next release of Ubuntu. The latest release is Ubuntu 10.10. Thanks in advance.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of this bug, i'm not able to replicate it (on the other hand, the second problem i described in the comment seems to have been resolved in an old gpm version)
