apm & auto-shutdown

I remember that I once saw a little script that would sit on the
backround and watch /proc/apm and when the battery life would
drop lower that pre-determined level It would first give a warning to
all consoles about fortcomming shutdown (Battery life low,
automatic shutdown in 5 minutes) If bu that time the laptop would
be connected to AC-supply the shutdown would be canceled.

On my old laptop the /proc/apm only reports the batterys state
(high/low/crtitical) not the battery life, only indicator that I receive
about the battery state changin is a too small flashing LED (I could
have a sound indication, but it is something like a abulance siren
(the sound AND the volume..)

I don't know much about scriping so I'm asking could you please
write this little script for me, please?
