Description Jens Weibler 2005-04-24 07:50:02 UTC
I can't use laptop_mode_tools because my acpi-bios doesn't give the information about the present discharging rate to the os.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:

Expected Results:  
The remaining battery time should be calculated or stopping the latopmode 
based on the value of remaining capacity.. 

# cat /proc/acpi/battery/BAT0/state 
present:                 yes 
capacity state:          ok 
charging state:          charging 
present rate:            unknown 
remaining capacity:      5940 mAh 
present voltage:         14800 mV

Nothing much we can do about your laptop having a broken BIOS. You could try contacting your laptop vendor or upstream for a solution.
