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-, and hal-info-20070618-noarch-1.

HAL has (almost) no policies for this sort of stuff. The easiest is 
probably to write a tiny python program that will listen for HAL's dbus 
event and basically do what the acpid script did.

s/python/your favorite language that has dbus bindings/
