I unplug the ac adaptor from dell mini 10 and the computer always shuts down
I am running Jolicloud 1.1 which runs jaunty, on a dell mini 10 netbook and I have a problem with the power management. Basically as soon as I unplug the ac adapter when I am charging, the computer gives me a message saying the power is critically low (a minute left) and must shutdown.
This happens no matter the level of the battery, it can be 20% or 100% the computer still turns off. Its strange because the netbook recognizes it is fully charged before and after I unplug the charger. I can run the acpi command before unplugging and get 50%. After I disconnect there is some time between the messsage appearing and the computer shutting down. I can run the acpi command after receiving the message and I can still get 50%. Regardless of this the computer still shuts down.
I had this problem also when I ran ubuntu so I think its my netbook hating on linux. And its not a battery issue becuase it doesnt happen when I run windows.
help would be a godsend!
