Acer Aspire One 532H Random Battery Disconnected messages


This is a new (Less than one month) old netbook that is just running Slackware 13.1 with KDE

Now, every 10 or so minutes I'm getting a "Battery disconnected/Not found" error and it's insisting I plug in.

Now, the battery itself is fine since by ignoring these messages, I'm getting 5-6 hours battery life easily but none the less... It's a concern.

It appears to be software related rather than a bad battery.

Has anyone experienced this and/or know of a solution?

Thank you very much

Hi,

Is it possible for you to flash your laptop bios ? If so, you may try. I think it happens due to mis-interpreted ACPI probes from your kernel because of your bios doesn't supports correctly those probes.
