Re: force charching in squeeze

the battery is rather new and last for like 2 hours. I mean:

- battery charge is at e.g. 70%
- I plug in the ac connector
- $(acpi -a) says "on-line", but battery goes down
- after 1:15 hours, at 2% charge, recharging starts
- after 2:00 hours it gets to 100%

(the numbers are rough guesses)
