In any event, sorry for the noise. Things are normal now.

Well, it doesn't pertain to oBSD in particular, but you could you share how you detected that the laptop was on battery mode despite being plugged in, and how you fixed it? My company has been considering replacing our (ancient!!) desktops with a bunch of laptops, and something like this will almost certainly crop up again.
