Power Problems

I have been having trouble with my battery not charging.  The battery seems to have good capacity — I just replaced it a few months ago.  But, I can run it down, plug the laptop in, and then hours later the battery is still dead.

I found this article that seemed like it might help:

Ubuntu Productivity: Battery always 0% in Ubuntu 10.04

I tried the two things suggested on the blog:  I pressed the power button for a couple of seconds while the battery and power cord were out, and I tried to start upower.  I didn’t have upower as an option even for installing probably because I am still on Ubuntu 9.10.

What I haven’t tried yet is recompiling libusb as suggested in the related forum topic.
