Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

I don't know if this is a normal behavior for a process which should manage at the best the power consumption?

I have to say that I'm using a lot the "Suspend" function on my laptop. Each end of day I suspend my laptop until the tomorrow morning when I arrive at works. I don't know if it can be the cause of my problem.

If I can do something else to help you tell me.

The difference is that in the #797094 bug the power consumption does not show at the line of gnome-power-manager, but only in the sum. Maybe it is a true duplicate.
