NAME
     acpi -- Advanced Configuration and Power Interface

SYNOPSIS
     acpi0 at bios?

DESCRIPTION
     The acpi driver provides basic support for ACPI including loading ACPI
     tables from the firmware, parsing and interpreting AML code, event han-
     dling, suspending and powering off, and attaching device drivers.  User-
     land may access acpi by using the apm(4) device.

     The following devices can attach to acpi:

           acpiac(4)           ACPI AC adapter
           acpiasus(4)         ASUS ACPI hotkeys

FILES
     /dev/apm        Power management data device.  May only be opened read-
                     only.  May be opened by multiple concurrent users.

     /dev/apmctl     Power management control device.  May be opened read-
