acpi-support was only shipped to not break existing custom userscripts
iirc and will actually largerly be ignored, all system default power
management stuff uses pm-utils (look in /etc/pm/ and /usr/lib/pm-utils/
for scripts, overrides etc)... if you want to apply changes, do it
there, acpi-scripts are likely to vanish completely in intrepid.
