Introduction

What is acpi?

"In computing, the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) specification provides an open standard for device configuration and power management by the operating system." [(http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Configuration_and_Power_Interface Wikipedia)]

What is acpid?

"ACPID is a completely flexible, totally extensible daemon for delivering ACPI events. It listens on a file (/proc/acpi/event) and when an event occurs, executes programs to handle the event. The programs it executes are configured through a set of configuration files, which can be dropped into place by packages or by the admin." [(http://acpid.sourceforge.net/ acpid Sourceforge)]

Installation

acpid comes with Funtoo. If it does not seem to be installed, you can run the following command:

# emerge -av acpid
