I am running Ubuntu 10.04 on a laptop... I run an IRC client and am downloading stuff atm so I have been leaving my laptop on overnight with the battery disconnected.

Normally, the GPM (I think it's the GPM) battery icon is fine. It's fine when plugged into the AC and when on battery power. HOWEVER, when I have the AC plugged in, remove the battery to leave it on overnight, then reinsert the battery the battery icon is empty and red with the text "Laptop battery discharging (0.0%)"

I dunno if this is a bug and if it was reported but I looked through launchpad and couldn't find anything. I will upload screenies if need be.
Thanks in advance for any help
