[T41] Matching APM functionnalities with ACPI
I have APM working, but ACPI
- is fancier (so they say)
- would let me capture combos with the [Fn] key (my top motivation is to
have [Fn][F5] toggle WiFi network)
- would let me play sounds, display a progress bar, would be more flexible
when events occur ("because I can")
- could integrate with a suspend to disk solution (?)
However, I am *far* from matching APM functionnalities so far.
With packages acpi and acpid only, nothing works. With
/etc/acpi/events/lid and /etc/acpi/actions/sleep.sh from
http://www.thinkwiki.org/wiki/How_to_configure_acpid, suspend to RAM
seems to be back, although *there is no power-on password* anymore, and
I miss it.
Next : the [Fn] key. Instead of describing my different attempts and
successive failures (basically nothing happens), do you know a package,
or a page that would yield a working setup? (thinkwiki? scripts in
Software conf: Sarge with a custom (vanila) kernel 126.96.36.199 and in-tree
IBM-ACPI module, and thinkpad-modules as well (any more?). With an
pretty ancient BIOS, if that matters.
