> Well, this is when battery plugin polls battery files in /proc.

i just executed

$ cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state

a few times and got the same spikes that the xfce battery monitor
causes.  somehow the gnome battery monitor does not cause the spikes
on their system monitor.  maybe their system monitor ignores that type
of system activity?

i'm not sure what can be done about this since you obviously need to
read the file.  maybe ask the gnome people what they're doing?
