Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

Release: Ubuntu 10.10
Kernel: 2.6.35-22-generic

Package:
- gnome-power-manager:
  Installed: 2.32.0-0ubuntu1
  Candidate: 2.32.0-0ubuntu1
  Version table:
 *** 2.32.0-0ubuntu1 0
        500 http://us.archive.ubuntu.com/ubuntu/ maverick/main i386 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

Probably the problem is also related to the Kernel.

Hardware:
Dell Vostro 3300
I include the output of # lshw

Situation:
1) I am working on my laptop (with a clean installation of Ubuntu 10.10) to save some battery I turn off the wireless card with the button provided in my laptop. Then when I need to access to the wireless I move the switch again, what I expected is that the wireless card is turned on, but instead my computer got stuck. I get a black screen with some lines, the last line indicating:

*checking battery state

The Caps Lock key, does not seems to do nothing, I try some combinations Ctrl+Alt+F1, Ctrl+Alt+Backspace, press the power button, turn the wireless card off again, and nothing works. I was forced to press the power button by 10 seconds and to loose all my work.

2) When I try to hibernate my laptop, it gets stuck in the same place as I mentioned in (1), the only difference is that in this case, if I press Ctrl+Alt+F1 I get the screen of the TTY1, but my keyboard inputs are not recognized, then I can not login neither recover anything of my session or work.

3) I am working with the AC adapter connected, I unplugged the adapter. What I expect is that my laptop continues working normally, instead I get a message that my computer battery is critically low and *SOMETIMES* (sometimes not) my computer tries to hibernate, and as I mentioned in (2) when it tries to hibernate, my computer freezes.

I don't know if I must make the report as three different bugs because the three are closely correlated.

Please start the "Memory check" from the boot menu. If that runs successfully, please start the rescue system in the boot menu and select the "File system check" option in the next menu. If the file system corruption is serious, the safest option would be to reinstall your system.
