I learned today -- the hard way -- that the ACPI code didn't seem to 
handle the reset button.  Odd, I thought, since there is a reset 
button script in /etc/powerd/scripts.  A glance at the driver showed 
that there was indeed no support for any buttons other than sleep and 
power.  OK, it loooked pretty easy to add; all I needed was the device 
ID.  So I downloaded the ACPI spec and looked for it.

Unless I 'm very confused, it isn't there.  So why do we have
