Hello there,

   it's a while now I'm experiencing some issue with ACPI after a BIOS
update some months ago. I tried to wait for some new kernel and BIOS
releases to see if the issue solved itself but it didn't. I get a lot
of ACPI Errors, lookup errors and table load errors. While I have no
scientific data I would say the battery life of the laptop dropped
about 2-3 hours after this happened.

Detailed infos about the issue can be found at [1] and [2]. The latter
link is a comment from a Red Hat developer and it's claiming it as
being a faulty firmware. I would like to hear a second opinion on that
and where to report such kind of issue eventually.

Thank you.

Kind regards.
