yer, the kernel-level stuff does some auto-thingies (you can tell i'm
not a kernel hacker, can't you?) but you need acpid to handle events.

my laptop runs xscreensaver for me when i close the lid, software
suspends when i hit the suspend combo, and does _nothing_ when the power
button is pressed - this last is mainly due to kittens who like
computers a little too much. :D
