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
