Batery of my laptop is getting bad. It can save 5% only. The problem is, message says: “Your battery is now fully charged” always displayed. You can not disable it from System > Preferences > Power Management.

You have to do it through “Configuration Editor”.

There are 5 notifications:

AC Adapter Unplugged -> /apps/gnome-power-manager/notify_ac_adapter

Fully Charged -> /apps/gnome-power-manager/notify_fully_charged

Power Low

Power Critical

Suspend Failure


To activate it, just type,

taufanlubis@zyrex:~$ sudo gconf-editor

Then you will get a ‘configuration editor screen’.

  • On the left ‘list box’, choose ‘gnome-power-manager‘.

  • On the right ‘list box’, choose ‘notify_fully_charged‘ then remove the mark on the value.
