	Had the same experience with ACPI and SuSE 9.  If you pass in 
"acpi=off" then it will use APM instead of ACPI, which works perfectly for 
me.  Further, if you load the "speedstep-centrino" module, it will allow 
cpufreqd to do power management on the CPU, which will increase your 
battery life a lot.  You might want to load that at the beginning of the 
/etc/init.d/cpufreqd script or something.
