cat << EOF
This source is shared between acpi-support-base and acpi-support,
both get installed by the spell, :).
acpi-support-base contains scripts to react to various base ACPI events
such as the power-button. For more extensive ACPI support, including
support for suspend-to-RAM and for various laptop features, see
acpi-support contains scripts to react to various ACPI events. It only
includes scripts for events that can be supported with some level of
safety cross platform. It is able to:
* Detect loss and gain of AC power, lid closure, and the press of a
number of specific buttons (on Asus, IBM, Lenovo, Panasonic, Sony
and Toshiba laptops).
* Suspend, hibernate and resume the computer, with workarounds for
hardware that needs it.
* On some laptops, set screen brightness.
