 Indicating no error?  But the error is easily replicated.

 Install the Fluendo decoder.  Save an mp3 audio to your machine. My
 instance is an episode of Quirks & Quarks.  http://www.cbc.ca/quirks/
 Another format might be just as effective.

 At bedtime, connect the machine to external power and double click on the
 icon for the sound file.  Totem should begin producing sound.  Turn on
 Edit > Repeat Mode.  Check that the audio is repeated.  Turn off the
 screen illumination by pressing the button in the top row of the keyboard.
 Set the audio volume low enough to not disturb sleep.  Sleep.  Next
 morning the red light is probably flashing.  Shut the system down.  Remove
 the battery for a few seconds and replace it.  The light will be yellow
 indicating charging.  After a few minutes the light will turn green
 indicating the fully charged state.

 This is a 1.5 running 12.1.0, Build 21, firmware Q3C07.  Ref.
