My problem was that when I closed my laptop lid using GENERIC based
kernel, the laptop would turn off.
I enabled all the acpi options in my kernel config and now dmesg says many
things about it (including some "not configured").
But my problem is now solved:
acpilid0 at acpi0 (PNP0C0D): ACPI Lid Switch
I can close my laptop and it does not power off. The kernel says:
acpilid0: lid closed.
I assume this would also be a problem with GENERIC_LAPTOP since it also
has acpilid commented out.
Why are these commented out?
I found some docs in the powerd manpage.
Does anyone have /etc/powerd/scripts/ examples for "lid_switch"?

p.s. I am giving another presentation about BSD tomorrow. So I wanted my
laptop to work with NetBSD :)
