Description of problem:
ACPI is unable to show AC adapter status on HP Omnibook 500
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
cat /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/0/status always show "Status: on-line", even if laptop
is running on battery power.
/proc/acpi/ac_adapter/0/status must be changed if power cord is pulled off.
APM show battery/power adapter status OK
Similar on sony vaio:
is shown, no matter of the actual status. This works fine with
a stock 2.4.20 + current acpi patch.
Works for me on Dell Lattitude C640 (so far it seems to be the *only* ACPI
feature that does work for me...) - /proc/acpi/ac_adapter/0/status correctly
shows the AC status.
