All on-board peripherals (network, sound, USB) work correctly, and the
/proc/acpi entries are correct. klaptop can detect correctly charge state of
the batteries, which is critical for me. Since I don't use suspend/hibernate,
I can't say if they would work or not. I have not ever had heat/fan/CPU
problems, even under 8.1. Under 8.1, I never got klaptop to work even with
acpid loaded, so I used akpi, which displayed values for temps, etc, no
problems. Here is what my boot messages look like:

Loading ACPI modules (ac fan processor battery thermal button )
<6>ACPI: AC Adapter [ACAD] (on-line)
<6>ACPI: Processor [CPU0] (supports C1 C2, 2 performance states, 8 throttling
<6>ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT1] (battery present)
<6>ACPI: Battery Slot [BAT2] (battery absent)
<6>ACPI: Thermal Zone [ATF0] (39 C)
<6>ACPI: Lid Switch [LID]
<6>ACPI: Power Button (CM) [PWRB]

I have the DVD/CD-RW drive working in ide mode, rather than SCSI-emulation and
burning works just fine with cdrecord. I use Xine for watching DVDs (I did
have to download libdvd and libcss from, and xmms for playing
CDs. Everything just works.
