    Laptop randomly power-off's when on battery.

    Hello guys! Finally managed to create my account in here. Im an Ubuntu 12.10 user for some time and if I had a problem I usually found its solution somewhere on this forum.

    But now I cannot find. The problem is, that when I unplug my AC power, my laptop is pretty ok. I've got Jupiter and I am monitoring the temp. by using sensors. But sometimes the power just disappears. It's not a regular shutdown or something, just the power-off. My battery is not even critical. Temps are low, battery should last for at least 2 hours... and bam. Power is down. I was doing something like acpi-handle-hack to make my Optimus graphics work. I don't know if that's it. Such thing never happened on Windows.

    I am also not that good, to know what information I should provide You. Any help will be appreciated! Thanks in advance

    Have you looked at the battery’s connectors to make sure there’s no dirt on them and made sure it clips into the laptop securely.

    Hmm... I did it right now. I can't see nothing bad there. And as I said, there's everything ok on Win

    You could have a look in the power management settings and make sure its not configured to something strange like power off when screen saver kicks in, apart from that I don’t know.

    I have already changed the settings in dconf editor, so that's not it, probably. But thanks for Your help
