Apart from what Ranjan said, the "action" based on battery status can
be different from one setup to another. Can you confirm your power
management setup doesn't set a high threshold for going to
hibernation?

To give you an (counter) example, usually the default is threshold for
hibernation is 20% I think. But my battery lasts over 7 hours, for me
20% means more than 1 hr. So I reduced it to 7% and now I get prompts
about 30 mins before my laptop is dead. In your case this could be set
to a much higher threshold by mistake.

Just a thought.
