I've battled with acpi issues myself but in the case of VNC, unless your
network interface is malfunctioning or some piece of hardware or system
related facility is causing you grief, I doubt acpi will be the cause.
To warrant disabling acpi, you'd be looking at more detailed system
information like systat/iostat ... and interrupts mainly.
Disabling acpi more often than not breaks hardware functionality on a lot of
If you are failing to connect to a VNC instance, then I'd be looking at the
networking/socket/software side of things and determine if it's hardware/acpi
related from there.
