You mentioned that your system is an older laptop, and you're setting
"acpi=on" in your boot arguments. What happens when you omit "acpi=on"?
Do you get a message saying something to the effect of your system being
too old for ACPI? Does everything still work as it ought?
I'm still working on this one.
