on a macbook air 4,2 i could not get the suggested configuration for slimlock on lid close to work:
DISPLAY=:0.0 su -c - username /usr/bin/slimlock
i had to use:
su -s $USERNAME /bin/sh -c "/usr/bin/slimlock"
(suggested complimentary configuration)
I had no luck with a screen brightness step of 1, in acpi handler. Adding these clauses to handler.sh works better.

Banner to warn users that logind already implements some of these tips?
Hi! I think it can be useful if we put a banner on top of this page to warn users that logind already implements some acpid features. Eventually we can highlight which of these features are already implemented, and a link to the systemd wiki page. Nierro (talk) 17:40, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
- The Power Management page (a section from systemd was recently moved there) links to this page correctly, but you are right - some note to read Power Management#Power management with systemd first would be useful. But I'd still keep the old examples using pm-suspend etc. until pm-utils is finally deprecated. -- Lahwaacz (talk) 17:51, 3 August 2013 (UTC)
