[ubuntu] Gnome Power Manager Sucks!!!!!!!!!!

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, Does anyone else have this problem? On power, my Dell Inspiron 1300 goes into spaz mode and keeps rapidly cycling from power to battery so that CPU usage goes to 100%. Unplugging the power sometimes cures this but not always. I believe it is Gnome Power Manager and/or Gnome Screen Saver and/or Hal-system-smbi. It is too fast to catch in top. If I kill Gnome power manager I get my PC back! Somebody please help me to cure this problem! Thanks, Dave (Hardware)
