Jonas,

Acpi is running and the battery module is loaded, along with several 
other modules from /etc/default/acpid (battery ac processor button fan 
thermal bay dock).

Dmesg shows...

root at rick-laptop:~# dmesg | grep acpi
[    0.000000] ACPI: LAPIC (acpi_id[0x01] lapic_id[0x00] enabled)

[    2.792000] Time: acpi_pm clocksource has been installed.
