sometime acpi don't detect battery ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT1] (battery absent)
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:27:56 EST
Description of problem:
Sometime ACPI can't detect battery. No way to resume it. After some reboot it
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux 2.6.19-1.2911.fc6 #1 SMP Sat Feb 10 15:16:31 EST 2007 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64
I have an Acer Aspire 5003WLMi
When ACPI doesn't recognize the battery also the wireless key doesn't work
Sometime if I reboot the PC and press the Wireless key, it start working, and
also battery is recognized and works well.
I will add the /var/log/messages and dmesg if needed, or some other info.
I've seen this happen very few times on one laptop too. There it turned out that
the battery was actually broken and needed to be replaced.
Also, battery detection is done directly in the kernel, so reassigning the bug.
Read ya, Phil
