Probably depends very much on your BIOS Version. I'm using ACPI; the
gnome1 battery applet did not work at all for me; the Gnome2 applet does
display the battery correctly, but doesn't recognize my ac adapter
(well, fortunately i know myself wheter i have the power cord attached
So it depends if you use ACPI or APM and on your Bios revision.
