Dear Lazyweb:

I discovered that acpid and gnome-power-manager were both attempting to handle brightness events resulting in very odd behavior. I have since removed acpid without any noticeable loss in functionality. Anyone know of any good reason to have acpid installed, these days? I haven't noticed any change... other than my brightness keys now work.

Possibly related bug?
I reported a bug about this in ubuntu and now I am curious if you think it could be related. Essentially, I can't change the brightness using the laptop's brightness keys, but I can change it using the '/etc/acpi/sonybright.sh' adjustment script.

acpid is good for what?
Handling the power button. Hal doesn't or at least recently didn't do anything with it.

Re: acpid is good for what?
Power button is working for me without acpid; appears that hal is capturing it and gnome-power-manager is doing stuff with it.

Is it all ok?
Does the battery level/charging information work without acpid? I see these messages in acpid.log and assumed that it was acpid that sent them to the gnome power manager.

Yea, the battery level works exactly the same as before. ACPI BIOS is being accessed by HAL without using acpid.

I think you still need acpid to do the powermanagement work if you are outside of X (hence without gnome-power-manager)
