My lid conf file looks like: event=button/lid.* action=echo -n 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep
How did you know that that was the correct action to take for the lid? I don't see that sort of thing on the apcid man page. I can see what the events are from the logs, and the man page tells me what syntax to use to tell it what to do for a given event, but it doesn't tell me what I can choose from for any given event.
