This bug is far from being fixed. I am using the latest -proposed
packages in intrepid. Same behavior for me as for other reporters: When
I boot up on AC power -> no problems.
When I go to battery, the issue appears and will STAY even when I
reconnect AC power. I get around 10 load/unload cycles per MINUTE. It
will only go away after a reboot. This happens regardless
LAPTOP_MODE=enabled or =disabled.
I am using a Thinkpad X200s with a Seagate ST9160827AS hard drive.
Please remove the "fix released" tags - this issue is NOT fixed. Plus,
if I may add, I find it silly to claim that this cannot be fixed
entirely because "the hardware sucks". This issue doesn't appear in
other operating systems so there must be a way to make it work.
