Ubuntu 10.04 : Sudden shutdown when battery at 43% level.
I run Ubuntu 10.04 on a HP dv2000 laptop with 2GB RAM. I see a strange problem with my system. When running on battery and the level hits about 43% (+- 1%), the system shuts down suddenly. No warning and no information in logs either. Temperature of both cores are below 50 C. I have tried cleaning the dust withing the laptop chasis but no progress.
Could somebody please point me to the solution, if any ? I have done quite some research on this and other forums but haven't found anybody else with similar problem.
Thanks in advance,

Welcome to UF.
Have a look in power options and make sure it's not set to shutdown at some wierd percentage. If not, try running the battery down a bit, then shutdown and unplug frmo AC power. Remove the battery and leave it out for at least 15 minutes.
Then put it back and connect to AC power. Leave to charge for as long as possible - overnight would be good. Then see if things improve.
Looking on the bleak side, it is possible the battery is not well.
