Re: No fsck in battery mode

This is bad advice.  Even with ext3 you should run fsck periodically.
For example, journaling doesn't protect against hardware problems such
as write errors.

These routine fsck checks typically happen once every 20 mounts.
These are the ones that the original poster wanted to postpone while
on battery power, and that is reasonable.  (Of course, one shouldn't
postpone fsck runs that happen because the filesystem wasn't unmounted
