    Exclamation Laptop-mode-tools kernel panic !

    Hello everyone

    After installing the latest 64 bit Kali distro, i wanted to have better battery life on my laptop , so i installed laptop-mode-tools , as i previously had great results with this tool.
    Unfortunatly , when i unplug, then replug the laptop ... i see a nice kernel panic.
    I've searched a bit on google and found some links
    http://askubuntu.com/questions/32763...top-mode-tools
    https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=154625

    Unfortunatly, the first post has no answer and the second says it is fixed or will be in a patch, but it is for Arch ...

    So i come here to searching for help, for my battery consumption is huge theses days ... !!
    Also, before i installed Kali, i had linuxmint 15, and laptop-mode-tools worked perfectly, so it not a hardware problem. I could run memtest if there absolutly no hints but i don't think the cause is from hardware.

    Tell me what you need in order to see a little more clearly. I'm no kernel panic expert ^^

    Thank you .

    Ps: i've posted here but i hesitated with the Kali linux troubleshooting thread ... please do not hesitate to move if you think it should be on the other thread !!

    Running on a Lenovo Thinkpad T430.
    Linux kali 3.7-trunk-amd64 #1 SMP Debian 3.7.2-0+kali8 x86_64 GNU/Linux

    I thought Thinkpad was one of the few laptop that got complete laptop mode support (or at least the better of it). Did you had a look here http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/Laptop-mode ? I remember visiting this site few times when I was trying to get laptop mode working in my Samsung. (There's different tools for each laptop manufacturer).

    Usually i just install the suite laptop-mode-tools and it automatically handles everything fine. but not on kali :/
    The wiki here just doesn't help me since i don't even know what is the problem at first !
    Thanks anyway^^
