Even since the gcc4 update (which pulled in kernel 2.6.13), ACPI has been a tad wonky.
Certain nodes in /proc/acpi (and outputs from `acpi`) either disappear or remain static. For a few days now, my (plugged in) laptop has been at "Battery: 35%, discharging" and my thermal zone is missing.

It seems I can get sporadic error messages, but nothing worth reporting. Others have also reported the issue on IRC.

In addition, the newest ndiswrapper (1.4) hangs for me when it attempts to set up wireless power management modes. I have a feeling this is related to the acpi issue, so I am hoping to get this fixed before messing with ndiswrapper again.

As a note, the current PKGBUILD uses lenb's acpi-20050815 patch, yet he has released acpi-20050902. I have no idea if this will fix it or not (I doubt it, but it's worth a shot).
This task depends upon

hi the other patch doesn't work with the kernel source that's the reason for not upgrading this patch.

I suspected as much. I still haven't found any info about this, and it seems that the issue is hit-or-miss - only about 20% of those I talk to have this issue.

The archck patchset uses some custom dsdt setup, which I should really try and see if it helps. If anyone is aware of other patches and/or settings which may help diagnose, please let me know.
