    We're a laptop, no we're not

    Ubuntu 12.04 seems to think my desktop PC is a laptop. This causes my machine to automatically hibernate when it thinks the battery is critically low. I was able to temporarily fix this by following this guy's tutorial (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CQ-SMAK9dNo). I'd like to completely resolve the issue though.

    Hardware
    Mobo: ASRock Z75 Pro 3
    Intel(R) Core(TM) i3-2120 CPU @ 3.30GHz
    nVidia GeForce GTX 460

    P.S. The reason for the title

    $ laptop-detect -v
    We're a laptop (ACPI batteries found)

    Bump

    Why would Ubuntu think that I have a battery installed in my system? Is this a bug? Can this be fixed?

    Fixed!

    I just saw a new update to the kernel 3.5. Updated and now all is well.
