acpi requires a fairly large amount of userland support. I've been doing
a lot of work on this, and intend to push it back into Debian
post-Sarge. It's not as simple as running something like acpi -s - nor
will just echoing 3 into /proc/acpi/sleep work for many machines.

On the other hand, every report I've had for the nc6000 has been a
failure. The 4000 seems to have similar issues.
