XFree86 problem when on battery and AGP/ACPI

This problem is beyond me! Here's the ingredients to the best of my
- 5.1-RELEASE (w/ver 1.17 agp_intel.c) or 5.1-CURRENT (Saturday)
- device agp in kernel
- ACPI enabled
- ThinkPad R40 w/ATI Radeon Mobility M6 LY
- ** Running off of the battery **
With this setup XFree86 will load up and run just fine. The problem is
when I exit XFree86 and try to start it again, or for instance if I use
gdm - login, then log off back to gdm screen, the gdm screen will only
partially display and nothing will respond. Another problem with this
problem ;) is that it isn't consistant.
When the system freezes up, the mouse does move, but jumps slowly from
place to place, and the HDD light flashes occasionally.
If I remove 'device agp' in the kernel, everything works fine (with
ACPI enabled), or if I disable ACPI everything works fine (with AGP
enabled). My guess would be an ACPI problem... and everyones probably
saying just disable ACPI! :)
Has anyone had a similar problem?
