The first thing you should try is probably to boot the oldest F13 kernel 
that you've got and see if the system's behavior is any different.

On both the older kernel and the new one, check the state of your batteries:

$ cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT*/state

Record the results while you are on AC power and on battery power. 
There may be an ACPI bug in your system.  You might also want to update 
the BIOS to see if that corrects the problem.
