How to turn off power change animation

    I have an ASUS UL30.

    The power change animation is really annoying.

    Today was a cloudy day.
    So my photovoltaic did not deliver enough electric
    power for full operation.

    And this causes an annoying series of
    power change animations.

    Notebook on car adapter,
    buffer battery drops below 11 V

    Big animation comes "Notebook on battery"

    Buffer battery is charged by photovoltaic,
    goes over 12V, car adapter starts working agin

    Big animation comes "Notebook on power supply"

    Now all starts again, about 2 times a second.

    Without the power change animation,
    it would be possible to work,
    about 50% of the time on internal battery,
    50% of the time from car adapter via
    buffer battery on photovoltaic

    So how to turn this damned power change animation off?

    It depends on where it is coming from. Lots of those messages if you are
    running Windows are usually coming from the ACPI driver(s). If you
    disable them, other things like the Fn+key also stops working. The BIOS
    also usually plays a part in this too. And most of the time, they have
    no toggle for something like this. But you can check anyway.

    Just thought to have found something

    Customize Icons

    Power -> Hide icons and notifications.

    Only problem, this does not work, notifications are coming as usual

    In Roland Mösl typed:
    That should work only for the system tray icons and notifications. And
    it shouldn't affect anything else.
