Yeah, I just wasn't sure we had support for it, I was posting from my
not-updated DragonFly machine at work before, and now from my mac, so I have
not yet had a chance to look. Just looking for smaller tasks that I have time
to mess with. :-) I was actually wondering if anyone had ported acpi earlier
this week, and thinking about doing it myself as my machine won't turn itself
off when I shut down (APM doesn't work, and I don't leave it on because I'm
cheap on electricity).
