sonypi aka /dec/sonypi does not work with ACPI enable kernels. The two
conflict. I have the sony z505js and I just ignore the wheel (sonypi) in
linux. Plus ACPI is not as developed as APM. I use APM instead of ACPI
since ACPI screwes up my hibernation key ([Fn]-[F12]). Once ACPI gets a
litle better I will switch to it.
