acpid and dbus

I'd like to see some more explanation of how all of these power management/laptop subsystems relate to each other. Do I need acpid now that udev and dbus exist? Will laptop mode tools talk to pm-suspend to initiate suspend on lid close? Or can this be signalled by dbus, or acpid? --VitaminJ 19:32, 5 February 2011 (EST)

I'm pretty sure you do need acpid, else the events aren't picked up. It seems there are some LM connected scripts in the /etc/acpi/ directories, but they don't really do much besides enabling/disabling LM. I guess that's up to the user to decide, but you could provide some suggestions on the wiki for these scripts.--Smartass 10:18, 20 March 2011 (EDT)

Laptop-mode-tools does not disable on AC

I think the command should be:

# touch /etc/pm/power.d/laptop-mode

because in /usr/lib/pm-utils/power.d/ there is a "laptop-mode" file
