Sure all this stuff comes from the acpi4linux project:
(I just installed it via gentoo's ebuild).
From what I've read and etc it sounds like it's very dependent on the
motherboard's bios implementation of ACPI whether or not it will work for
you. Some are written in a very clean, standards upholding way, others are
really poor, not following the ACPI standard so they only work well with on
OS (hint, not Linux).
