    Critically low battery msg after unplugging Netbook

    New to Ubuntu and am liking it so far except for an issue with power/ battery management. After unplugging my netbook I often but not always get a critically low batterylife message and ubuntu proceeds to shutdown. This seems to happen most often after it has been plugged in for a while and the battery is definitely fully charged. If I unplug when the indicator shows less than 100% it seems to be fine and runs down as normal.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 910 running Ubuntu 11.10

    a friend helped me create a log of the events but I don't know how to interpret and he isn't familiar with ubuntu

    Re: Critically low battery msg after unplugging Netbook

    also forgot to mention that after restarting if I don't have it plugged in the battery indicates a full charge with hours of usage left
