I just woke up, re-inserted the battery and switched the computer on:
the charge is the same as when I switched it off 7hr ago.
I found the the problem is actually elsewhere: in the meanwhile I got
from another list. For details see:
The problem is the suspend-to-disk method: in my laptop (lenovo
thinkpad) the "platform" method do both suspend-to-ram and then suspend
to disk. This is expected to make the resume process more rapid using
the image written to ram, while preserving those written to swap in case
of complete battery consumption. By the way, this doesn't work for me:
only resume from swap works making this method completely unuseful.
