to put their precious laptop to sleep. Most of this does not apply to
desktop systems.

acpi values. Hence, you need a computer running a Linux kernel from
the 2.4.x or 2.6.x series with acpi enabled, to use this program.

AcpiTool is currently developped on a Toshiba Satellite Pro 6000,
running Slackware 10.0 with kernel, patched with latest ACPI
patches (version 20040715). This application started as an attempt to
