Oh yeah, good catch. Is this an UPS plugged into a USB port?
I guess that could generate some sort of ACPI message, although I'm
inclined to think it might be the on-mainboard battery for the CMOS.
At least that would explain the issue when you changed mainboards,
whereas the new SiS chipset mainboard with its various sensors doesn't
support the old driver from the old mainboard (likely different chipset).

dumb question on the battery,
are you running an UPS?
I'm getting on icon on the fedora login
screen now, on a DESKTOP
machine, so depends on how they
hth, but probably doesn't just another
way of looking at it...
