UPS Tripp Lite batterys

Postby toomyg155 on Thu Jul 09, 2009 7:13 am

I have a Tripp lite Battery pack on my PC works good when power goes out and all but for some reason Mint 7 thinks I'm always on battery power and at 100% charge. Is there a way to fix this? it is connected USB into my PC and by the way my Web cam Logitech 4000 works without me having to find drivers as I had todo with Vista NOW THATS COOL. Other then the battery problem it works great dual booting with Vista Home P

What does windows see the battery charge as ?

Is there a way to fix this?

You don't mention the Tripp Lite model #
--maybe the float charge is always ON, and is a feature of that particular model

I forgot to add that Window does see it charged but running on AC power but Mint 7 see it on Battery power but the charge never goes under 100%
