[ubuntu] Power Problem.

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am using an Acer Laptop, not the latest model but not the oldest either, and I run it almost exclusively on external power. Every now and then it would shut down for no reason at all and I finally decided that possibly the battery was faulty so I removed it. At the same time I decided to try some other distros and had no power problems while doing so, at all times running with the battery removed. I finally returned to Ubuntu and immediately the power problem returned, in fact I did not even get the installation completed before the PC shut down again. I don't know what could be causing this but certainly would like to know if anyone else has experienced anything similar because if I cannot resolve this then for Ubuntu and me it will be ):P (Hardware)
