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)
(Green note) Note for KDE SC and GNOME users
I would like to somebody review my note; I'm confident it's okay but since I'm not proficient in english - and also because this is my very first wiki edit here, I would like to double check it, thanks! --msx (talk) 07:23, 2 September 2012 (UTC)
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)
