Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Battery fully charged, but removing power plug causes immediate hibernation. No error or notification.
I tried the gconf-editor /apps/gnome-power-manager/general de-select the option use_time_for_policy, but did not work.

I have a similar issue with Ubuntu 10.04 (2.6.38-11-generic): after unplugging the power I get a 'battery critical' notification, even if the battery is fully charged, and the computer goes to hibernate. On resume the computer works fine.
