Re: [T41] Matching APM functionnalities with ACPI


A follow-up with some problems solved (and how to solve them, for the
archive), as well as one pending issue (almost a show-stopper for me).

Can anyone confirm this is an APM-only feature? Or any way to have the
password work with ACPI ? Any insight on why it is so ? I am concerned
not to have it anymore.

That can be found on thinkwiki, but I think it is not too much to recall
it here: one needs to issue
 echo enabled > /proc/acpi/ibm/hotkey
(one would have guessed)
 echo 0xffff  > /proc/acpi/ibm/hotkey
(how about that ?!)
to have Fn-F5 and others captured and handeld by acpid.

All the best.
