I think that during my fresh installation (plugged) some autoconfiguration did not work and when I unplugged the cord while working normally it did recognize something missed before. This is my best guess!
Hi, I am a bit confused... are you saying that you can now successfully boot on battery or is that still not working? This is of particular interest to me as I also own a Dell Vostro laptop, and have had great difficulty getting ACPI to work under Linux.
If Gloria/Jaunty has introduced some kind of regression in this area, I might skip this new version.
