Re: Laptop Mode

I've installed laptop-mode-tools and started it up, but when I switch to
battery, it doesn't switch laptop mode on (cat /proc/sys/vm/laptop_mode
returns 0, and it should return 2 if it's on laptop mode).  Do I need to
install a hook to turn on laptop-mode when pmud detects I go to battery
and vice-versa for ac?  Thanks in advance!
