I have the kpowersave package installed.
Several times now I've gotten to the end of battery 1 and the computer dies instead of switching over the battery2... It doesn't shut down gracefully, it just dies. This doesn't happen in Winblows (dual boot) so I'm pretty sure it isn't a hardware thing. Has anybody else seen this? Could anybody offer any suggestions? thanks!
