How do you verify the battery level in each case?
On Lenny, I check by Kpowersave, by /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state, and
by LED of my laptop that show me different collors (blue is full

On Windows I check it in Control Pannel and with LED of my laptop.

K Menu --> Close section --> Shutdown.
Have you tried on sid/lenny with an etch kernel? Because if anything is
