After some manipulations (I suppose) with System services my MSI wind u90 netbook shows me “no battery present” in the battery applet, so I can’t control power management anymore, suspend and hibernation also don’t work.
What can I do?
Everything worked perfect before. However, perhaps it is not connected with System services, I’m not sure.
caf4926, reinstalling isn’t linux-way to solve problems.
I think at least settings of System services can be restored easily.
Anyway I should understand the reason. I’ve already tired of reinstalling (caused by wi-fi problems).
Unfortunately, there is no magic reset button and I don’t have a magic wand either and even if I did, they only work in situations where possibilities exist.
It takes me less than 2 hrs to re-install SUSE from scratch, update it and install all my applications and settings. Granted, I only do it the once on my work machine, but then I don’t fiddle with things I know nothing about.
Whether you consider the practice of re-installing the done thing or not - It seems to me that time should dictate your options, rather than some dogged belief.
I guess you could also try creating a new user account via YaST > Security and Users > User and Group Management. That will set up with default settings, and allow you to compare settings if necessary, or start over with a new account.
