my dell insperon e1505 shuts off at 60% battery life when in ubuntu and it is a brand new battery and i can stay in windows till it is run dry so i think it may be a software issue it happened in 10.04 and 10.10 so i was wondering if there is maybe a way to shut off the critical battery safety so it will actually run dry before shutting off. or any other thoughts would be appriciated.

It seems that some inspiron users had the same problem here:

it isn't marked as solved though it is a two-year old thread
