Default Clarifying using the button to cause a shutdown

Hi all,
I recently did a ground up rebuild of my little media computer. When it
was running I used to push the power button to initiate a shutdown. I
now can't remember what I had to fiddle to achieve this so that I can
replicate this on my rebuilt box. Is the accepted way to do this as per
the ACPI/Configuration page,


http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/ACPI/Configuration

in the wiki? I have seen some other stuff in portage concerning buttons
on laptops but I have hazy recollections of doing the above on the box
in question.


Thoughts greatly appreciated,

Andrew

Hi,
you are right, this is handelt by ACPI

YouŽll first need to check your BIOS settings. Look for something like "Power
button" with 2 possible settings - instant power off and wait 4s.

If you set that option to wait, a short press on the power button triggers an
event and a default install of acpid (daemon has to be running, of course)
should shutdown your system.

I think this should be what you want. If it fails, check your Kernel apci
settings (like CONFIG_ACPI_BUTTON), you found already the right wiki page.
