View Full Version : [ubuntu] apm_read failed with error code 1 - e1505n

After upgrading to Hardy, I see this in the logs - it repeats once every minute:

Sep 5 10:03:17 milou battery-stats-collector[6313]: apm_read failed with error code 1

Anybody know how to fix this? My laptop is a Dell Inspiron E1505n.

I know for a fact that my battery use time doesn't seem as high after upgrading. It's a month-old 9-cell battery, and where I used to get 4-5 hours of use estimated on a full charge, now I get about 2 estimated by the battery meter.

Thanks for any help. I've searched the forums and come up with nothing.
