Ubuntu guest on Mac OS X stops tracking battery status after full charge

Reported by: SototaSoft Owned by:
Component: other Version: VirtualBox 4.3.22
Keywords: Ubuntu Mac OS X Battery Cc:
Guest type: Linux Host type: Mac OS X


As the subject says, an Ubuntu guest tracks the battery status of the Mac host but stops if the host is charged to 100% of the battery. After that point, the Ubuntu guest reports a 100% charged battery regardless of the status of the host (plugged or unplugged).

This issue is not present with a Windows 7 guest, for example. The Windows client continues to track battery status without problems after a full charge.

Some details about my setup:

Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 4 Processors 2GB of memory

MacBookPro Intel Core i7 4GB of Memory Mac OS X 10.10.3 (14D72i), but the problem was observed with 10.10.2 public release version as well.
