Sleepd does support acpi for querying things like critically low
battery, as of a few days ago, in unstable only. To actually make an
acpi system sleep though, you need to patch the kernel with the sortware
suspend patch, and make sleepd invoke the software suspend to put the
laptop to bed.
see shy jo, sleepd author, with a laptop uptime of 5 "days" and counting.
