Odd, after running down the battery yesterday I again charged the machine
overnight and this time the power LED was green in the morning. The only
difference between those two charging sessions was the yesterday I had used
the black generic AC adapter whereas tonight I accidently used the normal
green XO-1 adapter.

I'm sorry that I can't provide more accurate information at this point but
will try keep an eye out for this behaviour and use olpc-pwr-log if it
happens again.

Thanks for your support and answers,
