Dammit, I should have pushed harder to get the scope into the same
release. Oh well.

Does upower trigger a shutdown/hibernation if *any* power supply is low,
or just if all of them are? Are the failing cases ones where the BT
keyboard is the only visible power supply?

In any case, no objections to disabling it if its the only way to
prevent regressions for now.
