What have you done? I kill pbbuttonsd to prevent it shut down the machine
and than monitor the voltage value—you can do this with watch cat … If it
is close to 9.0V (Attention: This is the value where *my* battery gives
up. Your might give up earlier! Then you loos unsaved data.) I plug in
the power connector.

Bye, Jörg.
