View Full Version : [ubuntu] When I pull out/put in my power supply my computer freezes

I am using an Acer Aspire and running Ubuntu Maverick and when I pull out the power cord or put in the power cord my computer completely freezes and I need to do a force shut down. I am not sure what I need to do about this problem. Any help would be appreciated.

May be a battery issue. Is the battery holding a charge, and have you conditioned your battery ( letting it drain down low before recharging)?

yeah... actually I have drained my battery before. My battery seems a little loose though, I wonder if that is the problem? I mean it seems to be in there correctly and it shows up when I start my computer without the power plug and everything works fine... its just when I plug up or unplug thats when the problem starts
