i was just thinking that (on a laptop) when the power is just about to run out (3% battery power left lets say) that the OS prompts all programs to save whats going on and prepare it so that if/when it does shut down there is no data loss or file corruption etc. I don't know if this is already the way it is or not but i just thought id put it out there :D

Goto on the panel: System>Administration>Power Management
then click the second tab, "On Battery Power"
and at the menu where it says "When Battery Power is critically low" select "Hibernate"
