Or that Fedora 11 can't read the hardware properly that checks on the
battery.  When I updated, 11 said all sorts of silly things about my
battery, but it's fine.  e.g. It thought the battery was always fully
charged, and didn't notice it discharging.  I have a multi-boot laptop,
and it was easy to test with another OS.

As for Robert checking his, if he has another OS, or still has a Fedora
10 installation, or a live disc, he can boot up one of them.  He might
try updating Fedora 11, in case there's an update that improves reading
the hardware.
