Package: kpowersave
Version: 0.7.3-3
Severity: normal


Recently kpowersave had functionality updated such that it became 
capable of dynamically recognising multiple batteries that have been 
inserted into a machine.  Just some feedback there, this does work well.

My Thinkpad X40 has two battery options which can be fitted at the same 
time or idependantly and kpowersave does a very good job of working out 
when one or both have been inserted or removed.

What does confuse it though is say if I boot up the machine fresh with 
one battery installed and hibernate the machine (S4).  Now if I 
installed the 2nd battery and resume the machine, kpowersave will not 
show this second battery has been inserted.

I have tried exiting kpowersave and starting it again and this has now 
effect.  I have also tried invokeing a restart of HAL which succeeds but 
doesn't seem to help, even if I close kpowersave and start it again 

It is difficult to ascertain if this likely to be a kpowersave bug or a 
HAL issue.  If on the basis of what I have described (and your knowledge 
of how kpowersave works in respect of what HAL tells it) you reassign 
this bug to the HAL package, then so be it.
