Description Bastien Nocera 2007-04-25 10:09:46 EDT
The Dell designers had the great idea of putting the power button on the outside
of the laptop, rather than protected by the lid.

So when suspended, it's possible that the laptop will wake up during transport
with the power button being accidentally pressed.

When the lid is closed, the power button should be disabled as an ACPI wake up

Is this even possible? It's also probably better to do this from HAL since you
want all the quirks in one central place...

The power button doesn't do anything when the lid is closed. Fixed in hardware!
