Fedora also have the acpi_listen command. It is part of the acpid
package. You can bind events to commands by adding a config file in
/etc/acpi/events. On the other hand, I believe this will be handled
by HAL sometime in the future. I think I saw something about it on
the HAL mailing list. If you want to go the acpi rout, you may want
ot read the acpid man page. (man acpid)
