Ubuntu: battery issues with 13.04


My battery has been strange since on 13.04. I left my office with battery almost 100% charged, came home took a shower, and when I went to turn on my computer, the battery was dead.

The power statics say battery not present.

What can I do?

I would like to add this was working fine before today on 13.04

dustin@dustin:~$ dmesg | grep battery  [    2.848289] ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT1] (battery present)  dustin@dustin:~$ cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/info  cat: /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/info: No such file or directory  dustin@dustin:~$   


since I had similar issues with no discernible answer from the Ubuntu community (official or otherwise) I raised a bounty on your question.

However since then, I did install tlp which has fixed my problem, it is an advanced power management tool for Linux. I start tlp in battery or ac mode depending on what my power source is.

I would strongly suggest giving it a go.

In the terminal:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:linrunner/tlp  sudo apt-get update  sudo apt-get install tlp tlp-rdw    sudo tlp ac start #or bat instead of ac
