Question Laptop power setting issue - laptop won't sleep on critical bettery


Using 13.04 on an Acer Aspire One 753 laptop, I have set the low battery and critical battery levels. I have then set the laptop to sleep on critical battery level.

However, my laptop just runs until the battery dies!

Any ideas..?
