Lid button doesn't work on Hardy

Bug Description

When I close my notebook, it doesn't turn display off although I have it in my settings to do so.

$ cat /proc/acpi/button/lid/C20C/state
state: open

I get this whenever is lid pressed or not. So I guess its state is detected incorrectly.

My notebook is HP530

Can you please check, if the workaround mentioned there works for you?

They discuss problem where pressed lid button crashes PC in 10-20
minutes. They solve it this way, too.

However it didn't help me. Lid button doesn't work still.

Have to confirm this in upgraded II.

However, when I ran II in runlevel 1 and started acpi manually, it worked. Will search which init script conflicts with it.
