If you set the action to "poweroff" when battery is critical in
gnome-control-center, is the laptop powered off?
If not, it looks like this condition is not properly triggered.

Do you use a time or percentage policy, i.e. is the critical battery
state determined by remaining time or remaining percentage?

Run dconf-editor and check org -> gnome -> settings-daemon -> plugins ->
power. See also [1]


Why is it that all of the instruments seeking intelligent life in the
universe are pointed away from Earth?
