Power history differs from ACPI estimate by factor of 2

Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-power-manager

The power history graph in the gnome power manager does not agree with the ACPI power estimate given by Intel PowerTOP. For instance, under full load my Thinkpad X61 shows about 40W in PowerTOP but only 20W in gnome-power-manager. I am fairly sure the PowerTOP figure is the correct one.

Is this symptom still reproducible in 9.04?

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. You reported this bug a while ago and there hasn't been any activity in it recently. We were wondering is this still an issue for you? Could you try to reproduce the same with Ubuntu 9.04? Thanks in advance.
