Is there an application that will set an audible alarm when the battery goes low on a centos 6 IBM 430 machine? Details of the problem here: I have set it hibernate when battery is low. However, it does not hibernate possibly because most of the time I am working in a full screen windows VM that prevents it from going to hibernate when I try to do it manually.
Since I am not able to see the battery levels (I am working in a full screen windows VM), the nmachine switches off when battery goes low. So I lose all my data and in one instance, the VMs (I am running windows and ubuntu) got corrupted.
