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).
