My battery, after 1 and a half year, is so much down, it reloads only up
to "60%" which surely means, it doesn't get the voltage up to what BIOS
thinks "100%" is.
And it does shutdown my computer as well. Without warning, running out of
juice at about 15% - 25%. It happens under heavy load, I have the feeling.
So. It depends. kapmd, gkrellm doesn't help here.
To Marks problem:
is it the font-server?
maybe a lock file?
try removing /tmp/* ?
there was another thing, but I don't remember.
my 2 cent.
