I've got a remote control attached to my DVB card and it works as an input device. Recently it started shutting down the PC when I pressed the remote's power button. I thought I should be able to prevent this without also disabling the case's power button by removing the "button" property from "info.capabilities" in a HAL FDI file, but although hal-device shows that I've removed the property successfully, it didn't make any difference to the behaviour so I had to disable all power buttons in acpid.
