I am using a desktop computer and a keyboard that has 'sleep' 'wake up' 'power' buttons.
My question is:
how to make use of these buttons? For example, I press power it will shutdown the computer.
I have already compiled the acpi support in kernel and installed acpid.
But nothing happens after I press those buttons.
Then what are the necessary steps to enable those button functions? Can someone point to me a guide or roll out some procedures?

Penned with bitter tears;
All men call the author mad,
None his message hears.
Check out http://acpi.sf.net under Documentation / Sleep. Also man page for acpid has alot of really good information about using the daemon.
