 Did you do this while the led was flashing?  You can also reboot to OFW
 and do watch-battery and then press a key to exit.  watch-battery will
 tell you the error on exit (if it still exists).  The led should stay
 flashing until you remove the battery or reset the EC.

 > 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.

 What state is the battery in when you plug it up?

 Please attach your power log(s).

 Also if you can duplicate this easily then in a terminal please run olpc-
 pwr-log before you do your test and just let it log.  olpc-pwr-log records
 most of the same thing as what is in your power log but it logs every 20
