Re: functionality of ACPI

well, officialy, ACPI does not exist in Linux, however, there is a kernel
patch for it and it will be in the 2.6 kernel due out art the begining of
next year. as far as the powerdown functionality of the ACPI function, I do
not know, I needed ACPI to get sound and that is all I care about. I am sure
it works however.
