I also found this kind of annoying. And as far as I can tell, APM doesn't show
everything. This is why I wrote a plugin for GKrellM that, using PMUD, displays
battery status in a window. Its almost as good as Batmon, but smaller. I know
this works on Wallstreet, PDQ, and Lombard, and have untested code for other
systems. If you already used GKrellM, this is something to try. And I still
need testers for systems I don't have access to.
Are there any other PMU-savvy monitors out there?
