  Battery indicator shows that laptop battery is fully charged when is

Status in linux package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

  When I have the laptop plugged to the AC power, the battery indicator
  shows me the real value of percentage of my battery level.

  Nonetheless, when I unplug the AC power and use the battery of the
  laptop, the battery indicator tells me that the "laptop battery is
  charged" even though it is not fully charged. It happens always, till
  the laptop shuts down because there is no battery left.

  In other words, the battery indicator works fine with AC power but it
  does not when working with the battery of the laptop.

  I am using ubuntu 11.04 alpha 3 (64 bits) with an HP Pavilion dv6000 laptop. This very same problem happened to me already with the ubuntu 10.04 release (and report the problem in the bug 577557) but a solution was not found. I hope this time I arrive in time to be able to solve the problem.
