I have a slightly different problem: The battery does get charged, but
the screen doesn't dim or get switched off, although I told it to do
that in the settings. That's a bit annoying, and it's probably not very
healthy for the display, too.

Is this also an apm problem, and can it be worked around?

I only know of /sys/devices/platform/bq27000-battery.0/power_supply/bat/status.
Maybe that helps?
