Thread: System still uses battery when cable plugged

    Unhappy System still uses battery when cable plugged

    Hi guys, I'm a newcomer around. I don't know whether it is a problem. When the battery is fulled, system doesn't switch to ac/dc. On windows it can be possible and it gives more performance. Opensuse 42.2 KDE is my system and I wonder whether there is a solution for this? System still uses the battery when the battery is fulled &100.

    AFAIU, it is your hardware that manages the charging etc, but maybe the true state is not reported accurately.

    When fully charged, what is reported by the following for example?
    Code:
    upower -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0

    Hi and welcome to the forum
    On my DELL there are three different power options in the BIOS for charging and using AC/DC suggest you look there as well.

    It says so.
    My computer is Toshiba Satellite P50-B-117. There is no option for battery in BIOS.

    This is odd..
    Code:
    energy-empty:        0 Wh
    energy-full:         29,428 Wh
    energy-full-design:  45,08 Wh
    energy-rate:         1,316 W
    voltage:             16,341 V
    time to empty:       22,4 hours
    percentage:          100%
    capacity:            65,2795%
    I assume the bug is to do with your BIOS.

    For reference, I have
    Code:
    power -i /org/freedesktop/UPower/devices/battery_BAT0
      native-path:          BAT0
      vendor:               innotek
      model:                1
      serial:               0
      power supply:         yes

    Oh, Then there is a wrong thing... But how can I fix it? There is no option in BIOS. How can I calibrate the battery?

    \What hardware supplier, on HP's you can press the F2 button and select
    battery check and then it should allow you to calibrate.

    Hi
    Any tools on the Toshiba support site? I would let it discharge on the
    battery (turn off any power management, screen savers etc). then
    recharge and see if that helps.
