Welcome,

Have you checked the manual ? :
Code:
 man apm
Are you using the -l option ?
Maybe try the -m option
Quote:
-l Display the estimated battery lifetime (in percent)
-m Display the estimated battery lifetime (in minutes).
Try, if you have not all ready:
Code:
$ apm -m
I don't have a laptop handy to try it my self, but that is what the manual says.

Hello and welcome!

Try starting apmd(8) with # rcctl enable apmd && rcctl start apmd.

You may want to set some flags, "see man 8 apmd". For example I did
Code:
# rcctl set apmd flags -A -Z 5
before issuing
Code:
# rcctl set apmd flags -A -Z 5

Well, I got out my laptop, and tried 'apm -m' , got the same: unkown, also tried a little using the 'apmd', but need to read more I guess, I usually use 'xbatt' to check mine, but is just shows how much charge it has, or if it is way down. Maybe some one else will know more.

I'm sorry. If you post your dmesg(8) it may be possible that someone here will recognize something about your hardware, and may be able to provide more advice if not a solution. Unfortunately, users here comprise a very small subset of the entire OpenBSD community, so it is possible no further help is possible here.

You may have better luck getting an answer by posting an informal problem report to the OpenBSD misc@ mailing list, including your dmesg(8) inline with your question.

If you wish to make a formal bug report, use sendbug(1) to prepare an email for the bugs@ mailing list, as that will automatically attach your dmesg(8) and other reports about your hardware to the message.

I never was able to get it to show a time estimate , only percentage, but for me that is good enough, but any way that is why I never got back either, also just have been to busy to really go over the manual completely.
