Package: kpowersave
Version: 0.7.3-2
Severity: normal

KPowersave displays the remaining time the laptop can run in the tooltip of its 
toolbar icon when the laptop is in battery mode (thus not plugged in). This 
time is often way off from what it should be. The same is true for the 
"information dialog" when you left-click on the toolbar icon.

At "99% charged", kpowersave displays "0:52 hours remaining" for my laptop. 
This should be something like 3:52 hours. Later, when the battery is 
significantly discharged (I cannot say at what exact point), the number is 
correct again displaying more than 1 or more than 2 hours without problems. But 
I cannot remember I ever saw more than 3 hours remaining.

Investigating this further, the problem seems to be that the 
primary->getRemainingMinutes() function first gives the total, correct number 
of minutes left (in the first seconds), but then it only contains the remaining 
minutes % 60 - I saw it switching from 4:38 to 0:38.

I am using a Thinkpad T42p with two batteries; klaptopdaemon did not have this
