Dell Mini 9 "No Battery Available AND Power Source Battery when no battery present - 09-18-2010, 05:37 AM
My Dell Mini 9 is running 10.6.4 and besides the random kernel panic when scrolling down Google Chrome everything is working fine. However, when I run the laptop without the battery, on AC power, the system uses the power management rules for "battery mode" (System Preferences/Energy Saver) and not "power adapter". The Menu bar confirms this conflict as it says "No battery detected" and then right below that "Power source battery". Its really not a big deal, I would like my DM9 to run my screensaver a little longer (15 minutes as set in the power adapter energy saver preferences) and not sleep the display in 3 minutes (as it should were it really running in battery mode). If I run the system with the power adapter plugged in and the battery everything works as it should, but the DM9 thinks there is a battery when there isn't one when running on AC power only.
Any ideas why and how to fix?
