Description of problem:
I added a rule for telling the XServer switching off display when I
close my laptop's display by the following script in /etc/acpi/events:
action=/usr/X11R6/bin/xset dpms force off
This doesn't work even if I tell the Xserver to listen on port 6000
and set 'xhost +localhost'.
But it works while having a running acpid in foreground by using
'acpid -d' - even on ttyX. So I think this must be something with this
'daemon()' function in /etc/init.d/functions.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Add event=button/lid.* \ action=/usr/X11R6/bin/xset dpms force off
2. xhost +localhost
3. service acpid restart
4. close and reopen display
Actual Results: -> nothing happens while other acpi events are
Expected Results: -> display should be switched off
Your script has no idea what your display is, as far as I can read it.
Excuse me, I first should switch on my brain :-(
