I have an HP TX1000z that is having weird issues with the battery. At around 50-55% battery power, the laptop dies. I can't use the switch to turn it on unless I plug it in. If I plug it in and immediately unplug it, I can load into Windows and see my battery at 50-55% - it degrades normally before dying. But if I load back into Ubuntu 9.04, it dies almost immediately.
