Because LC can't do two things at once.

Hi Richard

I noticed in your bug report was for Mac so till that enhancement gets
implemented you could use this.

function powerStatus
   put shell ("pmset -g batt") into tPowerStatus
   put matchtext(tPowerStatus, "'([^']*)",tPowerSource) into tSuccess
   return tPowerSource
end powerStatus

Not sure how to do this for other platforms.

I wonder if this could be something that could be made into a widget once
they are ready?
