I got interested in this recently because I inherited one of these laptops from work.

I just updated to F.15, and it does indeed fix the windows bit in the output of 'acpidump -d'. However, even with Tony's recommendation of removing the acquire/release of _GL in methods C12C and C12D, I still can't get xbatt or wmbattery to run, even with the very latest -current (which has had at least one acpi stack upgrade since 7/30). When I run either command, it locks the box tight. If I ever get a cursor back, I have to Ctrl-Alt-Backspace to get out of X, since I can't actually type anything. I have a feeling that my acpi table didn't actually get overridden though, due to the following from dmesg: ACPI: DSDT was overridden. -0424: *** Error: UtAllocate: Could not allocate size 6e49202a ACPI-0428: *** Error: Could not allocate table memory for [/* ] length 6e49202a ACPI-0368: *** Error: Could not copy override ACPI table, AE_NO_MEMORY Also, the "before" and "after" acpidump's don't show anything different. So, I'm curious if wmbatt is still working for Tony and Robert or not with the latest -current. The other problem I'm having is that doing 'sysctl -a', or just 'sysctl hw.acpi' locks the system tight for a couple minutes, and never completes. The last line that's printed to the screen is: hw.acpi.thermal.tz1._ACx: -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 -1 Any ideas on that one?
