scripts for handling many ACPI events


This package contains scripts to react to various ACPI events. It only includes scripts for events that can be supported with some level of safety cross platform.

It is able to:
 * Detect loss and gain of AC power, lid closure, and the press of a
   number of specific buttons (on Asus, IBM, Lenovo, Panasonic, Sony
   and Toshiba laptops).
 * Suspend, hibernate and resume the computer, with workarounds for
   hardware that needs it.
 * On some laptops, set screen brightness.

Besides some system tools acpi-support recommends vbetool to be able to power off the screen and some screensavers to be able to lock the screen on lid close.
