Ubuntu – Suspend when critically low power 11.10


Is there a way to suspend when Ubuntu is at critically low power. The only option in Ubuntu 11.10 power setting is to shutdown or hibernate. I run my battery all the way down till it suspends then i plug it in. It gets annoying when my computer hibernates at critically low power.

Thanks in advance for the help

Not sure why power settings only offers hibernate or shutdown.
You can change the option to suspend using dconf-editor:
Browse to org->gnome->settings-daemon->plugins->power, and change the value of critical-battery-action to "suspend".
