I’m using the most recent version of Manjaro KDE edition. I saw an option under Advanced Power Settings for setting a charging limit. I kept the upper limit at 100%, but changed the minimum threshold for when the computer starts charging while plugged in (I believe I set it around 30%). I decided I didn’t like this behavior, so I went back into the settings to change it back. However, every time I try to access that setting, it disappears. It will show up very briefly when I go to Advanced Power Settings then disappear in a flash. Is there anything I can do to fix this, or do I have to reinstall the system?

Update: In addition to the battery now refusing to charge beyond 23%, the variables
/sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/charge_stop_threshold are now set to 223%.
/sys/class/power_supply/BAT0/status is “Unknown (threshold may prevent charging)”. I tried changing the thresholds with TLPUI but that seems to be getting ignored.
