I've reinstalled Ubuntu 9.10 from scratch (CD), updated up-front and installed the ATI drivers. Still not working. Brightness and lid operations work fine for a few minutes than stop working.

Just to let it clear, suspend and hibernate work perfectly when choosing it from the shutdown menu. ACPI is working fine, the problem seems to be recognizing the buttons.

I ran the lid.sh while the lid was close (via timer) and saw that it never passes this line:

if [ `CheckPolicy` = 0 ]; then exit; fi

I believe it's the Gnome messing up the configuration, rather than ACPI being faulty. I'll try to kill most gnome applications after the problem appears and see if one of them is the guilty part.
