Re: APM and Toshiba Laptop



toshiba, satellite pro 490 cdt.

my dmesgs (CD install, both) say:

2.6 generic:
apm0 at bios0: Power Management spec V1.1
apm0: battery life expectancy 100%
apm0: AC on, battery charge high

2.7 generic: 
apm0 at bios0: Power Management spec V1.2
apm0: battery life expectancy 100%
apm0: AC on, battery charge high, estimated 1:41 minutes

actually, i'm too unexperienced to say anything. but - this doesn't look
like an update being required, does it ?
