I'm running Linux Mint 18.3 on an Acer Swift 3 laptop. My OS doesn't recognize when I press the power button on my laptop.
Here's what I've checked:
acpi-supportare installed per this answer.
- I've tried monitoring for input of the button with
xev, but it doesn't register anything when I press it.
xinputlists the following devices:
⎡ Virtual core pointer id=2 [master pointer (3)] ⎜ ↳ Virtual core XTEST pointer id=4 [slave pointer (2)] ⎜ ↳ SYNA7DB5:00 06CB:7DB7 Touchpad id=9 [slave pointer (2)] ⎣ Virtual core keyboard id=3 [master keyboard (2)] ↳ Virtual core XTEST keyboard id=5 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Video Bus id=6 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Power Button id=7 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Sleep Button id=8 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ AT Translated Set 2 keyboard id=10 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ Acer WMI hotkeys id=11 [slave keyboard (3)] ↳ HD WebCam: HD WebCam id=12 [slave keyboard (3)]
Is there a way to get my OS to recognize when the power button gets pressed?
