Thread: Battery icon on taskbar issue

  1. #1

    Default Battery icon on taskbar issue

    As far as I can remember this has happened to me throughout all the openSUSE 12 series (and probably even 11.4, but I can't 100% remember) and 13.1 as well, on both KDE and GNOME.

    It happens if I let the battery reach 100% charge and then unplug. But fixes by rebooting.
    SUSE Paste
    And it's a bit strange. Some time ago % went down to 60%, not 40... Though it doesn't happen if I unplug at, say, 99%.
    Laptop is Dell Inspiron 1520.
    On a side note, the time remaining lecture is seemingly not an issue, that's what it's normally used to read.

    Any ideas?
    Thanks beforehand.

    No
    But I can confirm, at least on my Asus eeepc it sometimes spacks out
    and it's something to do with the unplugging of the power. But in my
    case. I leave my eee connected on charge (in suspend) and then unplug
    it to take it around the house. Sometimes, when I open it up I get a
    notification that battery is critical and it Hibernates. So I disabled
    all battery power features for now.

    My Lenovo however is just fine. Never even twitches.
