Which distribution are you using?

The reason that the button does not work is probably a bug in the kernel 
(acpi) or in gnome-power-manager or maybe missing information in the hal. In 
it is the latter, you find more information here:

The only thing I am sure of, is that this is not within the scope of pm-utils, 
because it is the task of other sofware to call pm-utils, e.g. when a key is 
pressed. But pm-utils does not know anything about these keys.
