    ACPI battery automatic shutdown or auto resume when battery reachs 7%

    I have had problems with my pavillion hp laptop for a while. I have it serviced at HP two times in 3 months for the same battery issue problem. If i let my battery run out the comptuer has no way to recharge it. IT might be a bug with HP ACPI system. I was wondering if theres a way to have the linux kernel idle it or shutdown the comptuer when my battery reaches 8%.



    I want to avoid the problem of letting it run to 1% and not charging again. The reason i don't always notice it is because im doing stuff in command line alot and if i don't

    keep looing at the /proc/ACPI/*/* then i have no way to tell.

    thanks, look like the scripts there do what i need. i thougth there was probably a deamon that looked at the /proc/ACPI do you know of any .

    I know acpid can run programs when various events happen, but I'm not sure if it can do exactly what you need. Maybe worth a look though?
