Maybe, my problem is that I cannot tell either. :-)

Now this information helps somewhat. At least it tells me that the suspend
function itself is working. What I still do not know is whether this worked
before. Do you really get an acpi event when your battery is low? If so which
one? I found docs telling me about battery events but neither mentioned a
battery low event.

Anyway, is what you are looking for the same as
