Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 819559
acpid's /etc/acpi/actions/power.sh malfunction in kde
Last modified: 2012-07-09 11:35:27 EDT
no longer functions properly on f17 and kde (at least). It acts unconditionally on power button presses.
I'm not sure exactly yet, but I suspect may be related to
and the script's reliance on ConsoleKit (ck-list-sessions) to check for an active session
OK, found systemd-loginctl which should be able to provide the same information:
systemd-loginctl session-status <session_id>
will include "Active: yes" or not.

patch acpid.power.sh to use systemd-loginctl too
an initial proof of concept patch to check for power managers (gnome-settings-daemon, kded4, xfce4-powermanager) running within active sessions handled by systemd login manager.
ping, someone on email@example.com reported experiencing the same thing today. Can you please review the patch? I can commit the fix if you want.

Thanks for the patch. I fixed the xfce4 typo and hide error message in case the systemd-loginctl list-sessions is not available, otherwise it seems to be OK. Another problem is that the list-sessions call is blocked by SELinux thus with SELinux in enforcing mode it still doesn't work. I filled bug about it bug 831977.

Of course removed the debug fragment :)
acpid-2.0.16-2.fc17 has been submitted as an update for Fedora 17.
Good fixes, I suppose while you're at it, you probably ought to add
2>/dev/null after the later call to ck-list-sessions as well (since there's a good chance it's not installed).
Thanks, I added this to rawhide.
<RANT>And once again we have to get a bugfix copied to the SELinux policy for it to actually work. I'm so fed up of that dumb hardcoded ruleset that keeps thinking it knows better what a program needs to do than the actual program. Now WHY is that software equivalent of nonsensical bureaucracy enabled by default in Fedora?</RANT>

acpid-2.0.16-2.fc17 has been pushed to the Fedora 17 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
I'm sorry to report that this fixes nothing for me.
On an i386 netbook, where suspend and hibernate are important functions, both pm-suspend and pm-hibernate start to shutdown but immediately resume normal operation. The other commands to suspend and hibernate, acpitool -s and acpitool -S both complain that "You must have write access to /proc/acpi/sleep", but there is no such "file".
On an x86_64 desktop, where suspend and hibernate are never used, pm-suspend shuts down X and reverts to console 1, but certainly doesn't suspend. pm-hibernate works correctly - Whoop! The acpitool options also fail.
The power manager applet also fails on the netbook, although I'm less interested in the GUI methods if the basic Linux commands no longer work.
Your symptoms don't seem to match this bug at all.
The bug here is that hitting the power button *used* to get intercepted by acpid and immediately shut the machine off, rather than letting kde handle the power button event.

Try suspend via:
# echo mem > /sys/power/state
# echo disk > /sys/power/state
If this fail, file a bug on kernel component, otherwise file a bug on pm-utils component.

Please file a bug on acpitool component.
In all cases feel free to CC me (it can sometimes speed things up :)

Jaroslav Škarvada, you are a magician. I don't know what hat you pulled these commands out of, but they work perfectly.
I have added two new event files, lidconf and powerconf, to /etc/acpi/events, and corresponding action files containing these echo commands.
So now my ASUS N10 netbook with F17 is fully functional again.
Sleep button (Fn-F1) causes hibernation
Closing the lid suspends to memory
Briefly pressing Power Button initiates shutdown
Upon wakeup from sleep or hibernation the wireless connection, managed by NetworkManager, starts right up. I'm a happy camper.
That pm-sleep and pm-hibernate fail is still a bug, justifying a separate BZ.
Also for acpitool [-s|-S].
