acpid problem acer ao751h
I own an acer ao751h netbook.I'm running karmic ubuntu.I had some problems with the intel gma500 graphic chipset like i couldn't get native resolution (1366x768) and couldn't get the suspend to work.I found a nice thread online that help me fix these problems.But i still had the battery issue,specifically the only way to see your battery status was to plug in to ac.So if i hadn't had my charger with me i couldnt see my remaining battery.I even tried
but that didn't work.Today i found out that when booting up on battery and running
would make my battery icon appear again.So i made a script that uses that and put it in the end of
that worked ...but when i have my netbook plugged in and then unplug it,it seems that the battery it fully charged and the state script won't work anymore,that is the /proc/acpi/battery/BAT1/state).i think that somehow when it goes in battery mode the battery status changes.im still a noob i cant figure it out so i really appreciate another opinion.is there acpid relevant documentation somewhere online?
thanks in advance
