Help in Power Management

Hi all, I have a problem, I have a pc toshiba satellite a505 i7, I installed Open SuSe 11.3 everything works great but the battery, it does not recognize and it must be cause acpi option is not working on my pc, I have to boot with acpi=off, i dont know why this is happening, if someone has an answer about it, please let me know, thanks all

So here are the specs I found for your Toshiba Satellite A505-S6030, are these correct?

Processor    Intel® Core™ i7-720QM processor
Screen    16” HD (1366×768)
Graphics    NVIDIA® GeForce® 310M with 512MB GDDR3 discrete graphics memory,
plus up to 1755MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory using NVIDIA® TurboCache™ technology.
Total Available Graphics memory 2267MB
RAM    4GB DDR3 1066MHz memory
HDD    500GB - 5400rpm
Optical Drive    DVD-SuperMulti (+/-R double layer) with Labelflash™ drive
Network    10/100/1000
BIOS    Insyde H20 Rev. 3.5 Bios Version 1.10 EC Version 5.29

If so, I think you want to remove the acpi=off and add nomodeset and see what if anything this does for you. If it does any good, you should look at installing the nVidia video driver.

You should look at this document before proceeding on…

SDB:Configuring graphics cards - openSUSE

Then, take a look at the procedure I use to install the nVidia driver as I install openSUSE 11.3:

  1. During the install, when you have the option to change your booting setup, I add nomodeset to the kernel load command for the normal load/start of openSUSE. This kernel startup option is already present for the Failsafe selection for openSUSE.
  2. During the first start of openSUSE, I download the latest nVidia Video driver to the downloads folder.
  3. I change/save the System/Kernel option NO_KMS_IN_INITRD from “No” to “Yes” in the /etc/sysconfig Editor in Yast.
  4. I do an update of openSUSE on the first run of openSUSE and then a restart/reboot.
  5. In grub OS selection I add the command line option “3” to the openSUSE start line so that I just go to the run level three terminal prompt.
  6. I login in as root and change to the /home/user/Downloads folder.
  7. I run/install the NVIDIA video driver using “sh ./” and answer all questions as appropriate for my system.
  8. Type in reboot at terminal prompt to restart the system with new video driver.

If this is way off base, then you must tell us more about your laptop, anything that does not match the equipment listing shown above.
