Description of problem:
when the laptop is using the battery and battery goes empty, if the power 
preferences is set to "do nothing when laptop battery is critically low", 
laptop turns off. after connecting the power and turning the laptop on, kernel 
(kernel-2.6.25.4-10.fc8) does not start. it just freezes. I had to use the 
previouse kernel build to boot, and then reinstall the latest kernel 
(kernel-2.6.25.4-10.fc8).
