I reboot with 2.6.25-rc7, acpid gives error, HAL starts, I login, I press the power button and nothing happens. In acpid if I press the power button the system shuts down. I am using Slackware 12, hal-0.5.9.1-i486-1, and hal-info-20070618-noarch-1.

Among what might be other things, we'd need at least pm-utils
probably, which we don't ship in Slackware.
