Bug Description

Binary package hint: acpi

When I press the "sleep" button on my Thinkpad T61 on Kubuntu Lucid it does not work. It used to work with Hardy.
Triggering Sleep from the start menu works and the computer goes to sleep. It also wakes up after reopening the lid.

I don't use Gnome, I use Kubuntu, so I assume it's a generic acpi problem. Is the transfer to gnome-power-manager justified, if it affects Kubuntu users like me?

I am also using kubuntu (lucid) on thinkpad R61i -> It does not seems to be related to gnome-power-manager.

I played with acpi configuration, and it looks like there are no fn+f4 events received by acpid - or their code has changed.

I'm actually using ubuntu with a different wm, ratpoison. The sleep button doesn't work, but it does if I run `gnome-power-preferences`. Is there a way to trigger those power settings on when my wm starts without opening the the preferences menu? Or is there a better solution for that?

I was little playing with acpi_listen program, which shows received key events. I found out, that Fn+F4 event is received only one time per 60 second => quiet strange. Also it seems, that no action script was invoked, even when acpi_listen showed event.

Any idea, what package/program/system service is interfering, and filtering this events?

This problem also affects the T60p Thinkpad.

Unloading module thinkpad_acpi from kernel (modprobe -r thinkpad_acpi) fixes this problem = sleep button works, but many other are not functional.

Can it be bug in thinkpad_acpi? Because I am kubuntu user (with R61i), so I dont think this bug is related to gnome powermanager.

PS: it is present also with Maverick packages and its kernel.

Same here with T60 and T410, Kubuntu Lucid and Maverick.
