no, you didn't understand. I don't have any problem with acpi in general, infact i already have the acpid and my machine power off perfectly. The only acpi problem is that the battery status isn't reported...instead i have a lot of error when i try to get the battery status. And this problem is general to most of the asus laptop with their buggy and proprietary bios tables. So you have to load the correct dsdt(bios) table but i don't know how to do it exactly with kernel 2.6.x.
