ACPI Error shown by the 'journalctl -p 3 -xb' command

Is it possible to fix the ACPI errors that are displayed by journalctl -p 3 -xb command without turning off ACPI or another way that may interfere with brightness controls. The error shown is:

Could installing the acpi_call package and configuring a file to mimic Windows ACPI calls fix this error?

I read something about avoiding ACPI errors by using kernel arguments when you are using Intel graphics.

There is nothing to fix. They are cosmetic, unless you have other issues.
You may try another kernel, but you don't have to.

If you think that would work then absolutely give it a go. A lot of people would be very interested to see how you can mimic Windows ACPI calls under Linux.

Otherwise,

I earlier tried to fix the ACPI errors by setting the OSI (not sure) to Windows 2018.1 for version 1803 to mimic Windows ACPI call (used a post in Manjaro Forum that I could not remember its title )but the errors are still shown after typing the command after the configuration. I did not install the acpi-call package at that time. Is the acpi-call package necessary to mimic Windows ACPI calls successfully and fix these errors so that the battery life of my laptop is improved? One time I tried installing arch linux but forgot to turn the socket on. It was 100% when I started the arch linux terminal install process but after finishing the installation three hours later the battery percentage was 30% and no graphical elements were used except loading the desktop environment for a few minutes to check if it works. With Windows 10 the power consumption is 10-15% per hour when I am constantly on the internet downloading huge files and streaming via Wi-Fi.
