NAME
acpibat -- ACPI Control Method Battery
SYNOPSIS
acpibat* at acpi?
DESCRIPTION
The acpibat driver supports ACPI Control Method Battery. The status can be monitored by envsys(4) API or envstat(8) command.
EVENTS
The acpibat driver is able to send events to powerd(8) when capacity state has been changed. The new state will be reported as the fourth argument to the /etc/powerd/scripts/sensor_battery script. If a custom capacity limit was set via envstat(8), the acpibat driver will report a user-capacity event to the same script when current capacity limit has been reached.
