Maybe this is an indication of broken BIOS.
You should grep for the ACPI diagnosis tools and send your results to the
acpi-devel list.

I have Button enabled, too. Please try.

My .config file looks like this:

# CONFIG_ACPI_DEBUG is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_AC is not set
# CONFIG_ACPI_EC is not set

Here is something missing. Ah, the power button thing.

Unknown device 8042

Maybe here is something missing, too.

The ACPI people should lighten this. --- Andrew?

I am, too...;-)
