Laptop Battery status not displayed correctly - Fedora 11

Recently I installed FC 11 on my laptop.
The OS is not displaying the battery status correctly in the notification area. if I remove the power cord after 100 % charging, the status remains the same even during discharging. It never informs me the correct discharge status or any warning when the battery power is critically low. This is causing unexpected shut downs and data loss to me.
Is this a bug ? Do we have a solution for this.

My laptop is Compaq CQ40-327TU; dual boot with Vista as alternate OS.
