Are there any messages in /var/log/messages when you press the button?
Have you verified that acpid is actually running?
~$ ps -ef | grep acpi
root        16     3  0 Feb04 ?        00:00:00 [kacpid]
root      4884     1  0 Feb04 ?        00:00:00 /usr/sbin/acpid -c
/etc/acpi/events -s /var/run/acpid.socket
