After some search on the subject, there are chances this can be handled via acpi.
can't open socket /var/run/acpid.socket: No such file or directory
#tail -f /var/log/messages.log
tail: cannot open `/var/log/messages.log' for reading: No such file or directory
Perhaps acpi is off?
In /boot/grub/grub.conf , I turned acpi=on.
At reboot, I lost access to the keyboard. Luckily, I could log from another kernel boot and turn it off.
Any thoughts, ideas on what's going? How can this be handled?
