AT a first glance, your problem would seem to be this:

Not all functions are supported on all thinkpads, and the 'show me the
whole group' options for tpctl don't recover from this - tpctl just bombs
out when it encounters an unsupported function - if you try the individual
item options, you should be able to figure out which nits are supported and
which aren't. Also, ntpctl should work. [I assume here that the thinkpad.o
module has been loaded and is happy...]
