Q: Can someone add a section about this? Is it an alternative to ACPID?

A: No it's actually a kernel thread that is running due to an acpi module that is loaded into the kernel, like "thermal" or "battery". You can use the kernel argument noacpi in grub to disable acpi in the kernel. --VitaminJ 05:33, 18 February 2011 (EST)
