However, the problem appears to be that your acpid program is outdated and you are using a recent kernel.
Check firstly if you can find a decent repository from which you can pull a more recent acpid.
If you find yourself in despair and frustration try openSUSE. It could be a better answer for your prayers.
Thanks for the reply, it might be the OVH custom kernal that is used, OpenSuse isnt an option im affraid and i have not got the Linux knowledge yet to try and compile my own kernal.
Will try and find a newer version of acpid and post back.
