I need the acpidump(8) output to diagnose this further. You can extract the
so-called DSDT table by issuing:
# acpidump -o foo.dsdt > foo.asl
As it is unlikely that an OEM would make such a fatal flaw, one hypothesis
could be that the system tries to use so-called "passive cooling policy"
(see acpitz(4) for discussion) when operating on batteries. This means that
instead of using fans, it tries to lower the CPU frequencies to deal with
ACPI is under active development and the above scheme is unfortunately not
yet supported on NetBSD.
