Can you see if acpid is installed?

$ rpm -q acpid

if not, install it:
yum install acpid
and reboot, and see if that makes a difference.
Comment 2 Jaroslav Barton 2008-11-04 15:01:15 EST
Acpid is already installed.

$ rpm -q acpid
acpid-1.0.6-8.fc10.x86_64

This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 10 development cycle.
Changing version to '10'.
