You have to use either ACPI or APM. You might even have the necessary modules installed.
Go to /etc/rc.d/ and open rc.modules. Then try uncommenting

#/sbin/modprobe apm
Worked great for me.

edit: oh yeah, actually that makes it load the APM module on startup, if you want to try it right away just type

modprobe apm
