GUI method

From: Change Critical Battery Level and Action in Linux Mint 18 Cinnamon you can install dconf-editor using:

$ sudo apt-get install dconf-editor

Then go to org -> cinnamon -> settings-daemon -> plugins -> power

Exercise caution and tweak to your heart’s content πŸ™‚


Original Answer and edits below

Review your current settings with:

$ gsettings list-recursively | grep critical
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power critical-battery-action 'shutdown'
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power percentage-critical 3
org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power time-critical 300

Change your critical-battery-action

$ gsettings set org.gnome.settings-daemon.plugins.power critical-battery-action 'suspend'

Linux Mate differences

When using Linux Mate you need to substitute org.gnome with org.mate and possibly change your keys. From ArchWiki:

Battery discharge

To disable the notification on battery discharge, run:

$ gsettings set org.mate.power-manager.notify-discharging false

However in Ubuntu there is no equivalent.

Find all Mate power settings

To find all Mate power settings use:

$ gsettings list-recursively | grep power-manager

In Ubuntu you would use:

$ gsettings list-recursively | grep plugins.power
