Re: Low battery -> power down + clock set back to 1904-01-01
I've done some tests with the 2.4.18 kernel, and I have the same
problem. I've noticed that when removing a full-charged battery
(either the first one or the second one), a light at the middle
of the rear of the machine fluctuates for a few seconds, then
switches off; I assume this is because there is no power left and
the machine is off too, as I can notice it when opening the lid
(the machine is off and when I switch it on, the date is back to
1904-01-01). Perhaps there is even less power when the battery is
Would it be possible to force the light to off when changing the
battery to use less power?
Is there a way to prevent the date from being reset to 1904-01-01?
