Probably you're right, however the issue is not just the amount of the events,
but the events. When you have a look at the list it seems I removed the battery
and put it back few times in every second. (I didn't)

I have two batteries for this netbook. The upowerd produces the same
using any of them. However, an older version of Ubuntu (10.10) was
working fine on this netbook.

Thanks for your response, I give it a try and file a bug there anyway
