Low power notification doesn't go away until I click it

When my laptop's battery is running low, a notification pops up telling me the power is low and gives me options to hibernate/shutdown. When I plug the laptop in, the notification doesn't go away until I click it. Is there any way to make the notification disappear after plugging in my laptop to charge?

I'm using the latest XFCE on Manjaro Linux.

Hello and welcome.

This doesn't sound like Xfce's notification daemon. What does the following return:

ps -ef | grep -E 'notif|dunst'
systemctl --user status xfce4-notifyd

Just in case, I saw this in the list of improvement/additions for Xfce 4.16:

Autohide for the low-battery notification when connecting to a charger

Executing

returns:

And executing

systemctl --user status xfce4-notifyd

returns:

Unit xfce4-notifyd.service could not be found.

Thank you for pointing this out. If it's only a problem in XFCE 4.14 but they plan to fix it in 4.16 then that's ok with me.
