I've tried on one laptop running Ubuntu 8.04 and on my Eee PC901, and mprime does not stop when on battery. Hibernation is not a problem.

If you want to handle ACPI in Linux, please have a look at thermal management as well. I'd like mprime to throttle down when the CPU temperature gets within one or two K from the critical point where the computer slows down or suspends to protect itself, or even an option to keep the CPU at a configurable temperature by dymaically changing the throttling value. This is useful to keep fan noise on workstations at an acceptable level.
