Description rwman 2017-02-02 21:43:18 UTC
Currently upower does not allow to ingnore the critical battery lavel. This is very useful to recalibrate the battery. I want upower enabled to see how the battery controller stats are changing while I am doing recalibration. But I don't want to perform any action on critical level, as the controller lies about the real battery level until it is fully recalibrated.
For the last week upower is really busy thrashing my hard disk with its attemps to hibernate. Please add an option "Ignore" to the upower critical action, so that it will not try to kill my pc.

There is a pacth to do that, but I am not sure if it is good: https://gist.github.com/m13253/b49725d2e661768fe399844d702d562d

I also think that "ignore" would be a useful option, esp when another component is made responsible for handling the critical battery level action (a desktop component such as xfce4-power-manager)
