Wrong power warnings + sleep

Bug #38756 reported by Trip on 2006-04-08
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
linux (Ubuntu)

Bug Description

I boot up the laptop with power connected & all seems fine.
I unplug the power cord from the laptop & the warning that pops up is wrong.
Sometimes it shows the power unplugged warning, some times it doesn't.
It always shows a warning about the battery power being low & that I should plug in the power cable again. In the same message it always has the correct percentage in brackets (98%) & the icon on the desktop bar seems fine.
When I plug the power back in a new message appears, stating the same wrong low power message again & the laptop go's into sleep/suspend mode.

Tested with Dapper Flight 6 live cd & my full Breezy to Dapper upgrade install.
Sony VAIO VGN-FS215E laptop.

Is this still an issue for you in 7.10 (Gutsy) or 8.04 (Hardy)?

If it is, please attach the following information to the bug report as _separate_ attachments:

 * Output of uname -a
 * Output of sudo lspci -vvnn
 * Output of sudo dmidecode
 * Try to hibernate/suspend and then restart the system and attach /var/log/kern.log.0
 * Tarball of /proc/acpi directory. You can't just tar all files because their content sometimes changes etc.
   cp -r /proc/acpi /tmp
   tar -cvjf ~/acpi.tar.bz /tmp/acpi
