ACPI is under heavy development in Linux, don't expect it to work to 100%.

In my pc, eventhough it decects ACPI only works with the AC-Power on indicator.
Battery doesn't work, processor temp, fan speeds, suspend, nothing else works, heheh, so yeah, ACPI support depends highly on the hardwre you've got.
