Re: KLaptop finishes session with "Battery is running out!" when unplugged
I have the same problem, but even with a plugged laptop until it refreshes the
few the first time. Annoying thing is, that it shut my laptop down on very
boot when I had automatic shutdown switched on (lol). More strange is, that
the percantage shown IS correct - only the time left isn' t. So I think there
is a bug in the function where the time left is calculated (signum error
perhaps, -1 = 0 ?).
I mailed the author if it would be possible to enter a time and/or a
percantage for warnings in later versions, but he only responded: "No."
Sry. I someone has more luck to get it working, pls mail me. Nevertheless it's
a great tool.
