Hi. I know some of you have Netbooks, and keeping you in the loop with this
issue if you haven't noticed it yet.

A bug that triggers hibernation when you connect/disconnect the AC power, as
power manager thinks the battery is running low. It affects my MSI
some Dell netbooks<https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/devicekit-power/+bug/504929>,
and possibly others too.
The work-around: launch gconf-editor. Navigate to Apps / gnome-power-manager
/ general. De-select the option use_time_for_policy.

Regards, Wes
