    Power manager reports false positives-amd64

    Doing a raw power test on Acer Extensa 4420 amd64AthlonX2 it initially reported 18hrs!! of time then 1 minute later reports battery is critically low/ then/reboot/ then bring up power settings, reports critally low, then starts to increase in time.

    This battery will give me 2hrs40 minutes on Mint Julia.

    Well over 1/2 hour has past and the power indicator still reports 48 minutes. I am writing this message from said PC.

    Using raring-desktop-i386.iso daily on an Acer Aspire 3620, consumed 20 minutes of time with only 1% gone.

    1 hour has elapsed and only 2% poer used. I tried to run a movie, it crashed but recovered itself while in live mode (no reboot), ran gedit, wrote a file, running system monitor, firefox... I am just testing to see if any of the new power management features are woking.
