My old laptop has the stupidest power management ever

it beeps loudly at me that the battery is about to run out
and then if I plug it in, it suspends ten seconds later anyway
and if I try to unsuspend right away, even plugged in, it wakes up, beeps at me, and then hibernates.

and if I don't plug it in, it suspends and then wakes back up after a couple of minutes, beeps loudly, and then goes into a poorly executed hibernation from which a proper recovery is unlikely and the only option is a forced reboot

it does all of this regardless of what operating system I'm running

I am too lazy to change the things that would need to be changed to make it stop doing these things.

Stan is familiar with many majicks. But this "computer" sorcery is baffling.
