Yes, I'd already seen that page. But if you notice it was last updated
in May 2003. It seems that the last time he tried ACPI the 2.6 kernel
hadn't even come out yet, and I know that there have been significant
improvements since then. I believe that is why it is now compiled into
Fedora kernels and enabled by default, and also why I wanted to give it
a try.

There's lots and lots of stuff under /proc/acpi:

$ ls -R /proc/acpi/
ac_adapter  battery  embedded_controller  fan             processor
alarm       button   event                info            sleep
asus        dsdt     fadt                 power_resource  thermal_zone
alarm  info  state
alarm  info  state
lid  power  sleep
info  state
info  limit  power  throttling
cooling_mode  polling_frequency  state  temperature  trip_points

I notice that there is /proc/acpi/button/lid/LID/state. I guess I could
just try shutting the lid and seeing what happens!

Best, Darren
