acpilid -- ACPI Lid Switch SYNOPSIS
acpilid* at acpi? DESCRIPTION
The acpilid driver supports ACPI ``lid switches''. The powerd(8) daemon can be used to control actions against the events of opening or closing the lid. The script used is /etc/powerd/scripts/lid_switch, and the events are either pressed (the lid was closed) or released (the lid was opened). EXAMPLES
The following example modifies the mentioned script in order to put the system into (S3) sleep when the lid is closed: ... case "${2}" in pressed) logger -p info "${0}: suspending..." # As in sleep_button, kill some daemons. # /etc/rc.d/dhcpcd stop /etc/rc.d/network stop /etc/rc.d/wpa_supplicant stop # Suspend. # if /sbin/sysctl hw.acpi.sleep.state >/dev/null 2>&1; then /sbin/sysctl -w hw.acpi.sleep.state=3 fi # Waking up. # /etc/rc.d/wpa_supplicant start /etc/rc.d/network start /etc/rc.d/dhcpcd start ...

sysmon_pswitch -- framework for power switches SYNOPSIS
#include <dev/sysmon/sysmonvar.h> int sysmon_pswitch_register(struct sysmon_pswitch *smpsw); void sysmon_pswitch_unregister(struct sysmon_pswitch *smpsw); void sysmon_pswitch_event(struct sysmon_pswitch *smpsw, int event); DESCRIPTION
The machine-independent sysmon_pswitch provides a framework for power management. The interface has been largely superceded by the pmf(9) framework, but sysmon_pswitch is still used to manage power switches as well as related mechanical adapters and buttons. These are encapsu- lated in the following structure: struct sysmon_pswitch { const char *smpsw_name; /* power switch name */ int smpsw_type; /* power switch type */ LIST_ENTRY(sysmon_pswitch) smpsw_list; }; Unsurprisingly, smpsw_name specifies the name of the power switch and smpsw_type defines the type of it. The following types are defined: PSWITCH_TYPE_POWER PSWITCH_TYPE_SLEEP PSWITCH_TYPE_LID PSWITCH_TYPE_RESET PSWITCH_TYPE_ACADAPTER PSWITCH_TYPE_HOTKEY If the type is PSWITCH_TYPE_HOTKEY, there are few predefined names that can be used for smpsw_name: PSWITCH_HK_DISPLAY_CYCLE display-cycle PSWITCH_HK_LOCK_SCREEN lock-screen PSWITCH_HK_BATTERY_INFO battery-info PSWITCH_HK_EJECT_BUTTON eject-button PSWITCH_HK_ZOOM_BUTTON zoom-button PSWITCH_HK_VENDOR_BUTTON vendor-button Once a power switch event has been proceeded, sysmon_pswitch will inform the user space powerd(8), which will possibly execute a script matching the type of the power switch. FUNCTIONS
After the sysmon_pswitch structure has been initialized, a new power switch device can be registered by using sysmon_pswitch_register(). The device can be detached from the framework by sysmon_pswitch_unregister(). The sysmon_pswitch_event() is used to signal a new power switch event. There are two possibilities for the value of event: PSWITCH_EVENT_PRESSED A button has been pressed, the lid has been closed, the AC adapter is off, etc. PSWITCH_EVENT_RELEASED A button has been released, the lid is open, the AC adapter is on, etc. The corresponding events in powerd(8) are pressed and released.
