tp_smapi inhbit_charge_minutes

Regarding your edit to tp_smapi: how does inhbit_charge_minutes fail, and what's does dmesg say when you write to that attribute?

It does not fail, but it doesn't take any effect. dmesg says that inhabit_charge_minutes has been set, but the battery's state is still "idle".

  1. echo 1 > /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/inhibit_charge_minutes
  2. dmesg

... smapi smapi: set_inhibit_charge_minutes: set to 1 for bat=0

  1. cat /sys/devices/platform/smapi/BAT0/state



That's the expected behavior. To test, write 3 to inhibit_charge_minutes when the battery is charging. It should stop charging for 3 minutes, and then resume charging.

Oh. Ok, then I guess everything works fine.
