1. ACPI Embedded Controller (EC) problem. I have it to on Acer 5720. Not 
solved,but disabled by:
debug.acpi.disabled="ec cmbat"
2. System cooling and heat management problem (thermal). Try to disable this 
part of ACPI by adding 'thermal' to debug.acpi.disabled BUT be carefull cuz of 
system overheat!. After this it will looks like:
debug.acpi.disabled="ec cmbat thermal"
