This change look really useful, 1.68 works ok with it.

So may be we can patch 1.68 when building package?

Confirming recent comments.
1.68 is restarting continuously, 1.67 works ok.
ACER Aspire V3.

Users report 1.68 works ok on Gentoo, so possibly systemd issue...

Guess you should report this to the upstream issues list (https://github.com/rickysarraf/laptop-mode-tools/issues). Here we just make package.

Downgrading to 1.67-1 seems to solve the issue for now, although it is obviously a workaround.

Note that another user is reporting problems with the update on the forums, and that user is also on a ThinkPad - although a different model. I have no idea whether this is of any significance or not.

The latest version of the package restarts every time I connect a USB device (a mouse) to my laptop. Moreover, the mouse doesn't work at all. Before rebooting, it worked for a short while. After rebooting, it does nothing.

For example the journal shows:

And then it all starts over. I'm not sure if this is an interaction between laptop-mode-tools and KDE or what.

I noticed that makepkg caused it to try (unsuccessfully) to restart acpid when building. However, I forced a rebuild after rebooting. I also removed the dangling acpid.socket left in /etc/systemd/system/sockets.target.wants.

But nothing seems to help.
