SOLVED: gnome3: battery icon on and off every second

Today, no idea why, my EEE PC and F17 are acting up. There is lots of disk I/O, and the battery icon keeps turning off and on every second.. The messages log shows:

May 1 08:05:37 tk kernel: [ 2141.015503] asus_wmi: Unknown key 57 pressed
May 1 08:05:37 tk kernel: [ 2141.430375] asus_wmi: Unknown key 58 pressed
May 1 08:05:37 tk kernel: [ 2141.614793] asus_wmi: Unknown key 57 pressed
May 1 08:05:40 tk kernel: [ 2144.135556] asus_wmi: Unknown key 57 pressed
May 1 08:05:40 tk kernel: [ 2144.283886] asus_wmi: Unknown key 57 pressed
May 1 08:05:40 tk kernel: [ 2144.578569] asus_wmi: Unknown key 58 pressed

lots and lots of these -- more added every second.. No key is being held down, btw..

Update: It only happens when the laptop is plugged in!

Any ideas what to do?
Thanks, -turgut

UPDATE: Sorry - it's a flakey power adaptor that cannot hold the required amp when the laptop is being charged and used at the same time..
