Not specifically Linux...
My T530 is doing a lot of clicking as I hold it here in my lap. I
believe this sound is from whatever senses removal/replacement of the
power cord (and therefore switches the laptop from wallplug to battery
power--or back). This distintive double-click sound, in fact, has
occured five or six times during the typing of this message.
As this clicking occurs, I can see the battery charge indicator on my
Fedora Gnome desktop go from "charge" to "running on battery" and back.
Screen also flashes.
I had a similar issue long ago with a T61 and finally narrowed it down
to the original Lenovo power supply cable not being right-sized for an
after-market 9-cell battery.
In the current situation, however, the power supply and battery are all
the true Lenovo originals that came with the system.
So, am I looking at a failing battery? Bad power supply/cord? Something
Thanks for help.
