    (Whoops, I forgot to CC my last reply to the list.)

    Powering the machine off is all that ACPI seems to be good for ATM
as well, but I have some hope that the battery monitoring functions
could be fixed soon (at least, it seems close enough to working and I
have enough information to complain about it and hope someone who
knows what they are doing will try to fix it.) The battery socket gets
detected as long as there is no battery inserted at boottime; if a
battery is inserted after that, ACPI reports errors when trying to
query the battery status.

    I would be happy if anyone (with or without an i2500) wants to try
to help figuring out what is wrong with ACPI.  ;-)
