Hmm...  Well, if it works for you, then it must be something peculiar with my specific system.  In which case, yes, polling would be a needless complication.  I'll have to give it a look and see what the dillyo is.

Other tweaks

No explanations with these tweaks? What do these do? Is linking to the source enough or should we describe what we're doing in detail? I'm never too comfortable with "do this" type instructions without a "this is why" explanations.--Multiphrenic 09:05, 27 April 2011 (EDT)

Udev Rule to Suspend System

The udev rule could be edited to run a script that does polls the battery's capacity at regular interval when it's status changes to Discharging:

## SLEEP IF BATTERY IS LOW
SUBSYSTEM=="power_supply", ATTR{status}=="Discharging", ATTR{capacity}=="2", RUN+="/usr/bin/systemctl suspend RUN+="/script/to/poll/battery/and/suspend/system.sh"

There may also be a uevent that fires when the battery reaches an alarm state (when /sys/class/power_supply/BAT*/alarm is reached or changes). I have not tested this on my own system yet or figured out just how that file works yet. Ego.abyssi (talk) 23:32, 3 March 2013 (UTC)
