This script doesn't work. Tested with 2 Archlinux and Mandriva 2010.2

Being version 0.2 as of 2009, I don't think anyone has it at the top of a current todo list. It basically is trying to access mountpoints that 'acpid' would set up. So you can have functioning acpi hardware, but this bash script is looking for the software side of things…

I don't know if it's still being maintained, but it says “ACPI is NOT active on this system” when excuting it on Ubuntu 10.10, 2.6.36-020636rc7-generic, although ACPI for sure is enabled.
