The Presario 700 series has some problems with ACPI: with my 714EA  I
get no ACPI events, so the power button and lid closing have no effect
(apart from the hard reset triggered by pressing the power button for a
long time).  There is no suspend (this is a general problem with Linux
ACPI), but software suspend may or may not work.  Battery and AC outlet
status work for me.

I use Linux 2.4.18 with a recent ACPI patch and some other patches
(one related to ACPI).
