With rawhide, g-p-m will dim the screen on AC power even with the "[ ] Dim
display when idle" button unchecked.

In addition, I have seen it not indicate that the plug was in on the icon while
plugged into the wall (even though it was obviously charging and the hardware
light was on).  I haven't been able to reliably reproduce that though.

I guess you were seeing the sysfs breakage of the power class. I guess this is
