    Good.

    The downside to ACPI is that it's a complex standard, and with complexity
    comes the inevitable bugs. As you just found out, it does a lot more than
    just power control (the "C" is for "Configuration").

    On some machines the ACPI support is even more broken than other BIOS
    tables, but it's getting better.
