What Lars said about 'hw.acpi.lid_switch_state=S3' .. assuming suspend &
resume work properly normally (via 'acpiconf -s3' or your sleep button)

But regarding your battery, from your dmesg it IS being recognised:

 battery0: <ACPI Control Method Battery> on acpi0
 acpi_acad0: <AC Adapter> on acpi0
 battery0: battery initialization start
 acpi_acad0: acline initialization start
 battery0: critically low charge!
 acpi_acad0: On Line
 battery0: battery initialization done, tried 1 times

.. but is reporting critically low state on startup.

Which is either a dead battery, or a broken charging circuit.  Usually 
that has nothing to do with the OS; if you have it plugged in when not 
running, it should fully charge, or at least charge past the critically 
low state fairly quickly - and even when running on AC power.

So as Kevin asked, 'sysctl hw.acpi' and 'acpiconf -i0' could be helpful.
