Power Manager appears stuck [solved]

Post by chrisonmint » Thu Feb 25, 2016 3:24 pm

Great to be back!! Thanks to the MINT team for a swift recovery. New password, ready to post!

Right - my question: The cinnamon power manager applet shows my battery status as "charging" and this doesnt change. The battery seems fine, as the LED on my laptop lights up when its being charged and then goes out later. The applet seems stuck, even with a reboot.

Any suggestions?

I am marking it as solved - it looks like a hardware issue. :roll:
