20 Skipping fsck at boot, when the system's on battery, would appear to
21 be hard coded in /etc/init.d/fsck ... and the function it uses to
22 check is completely independent of userspace tools related to PM. The
23 only thing it checks is the /proc tree. You can make it ignore all of
24 that and force a check by booting with forcefsck on your kernel
25 command line or by creating the file /forcefsck (simply using touch
26 should suffice).
28 You say "Chaos ensues" ... in what way? Further errors, failure to
29 boot, file system corruption, or...? The problem isn't likely rooted
30 in the fact that it doesn't run an fsck when the system's booting on
31 battery, but rather that you have some more pressing problem that
32 should be addressed.
