Is it possible to support the lid state in ACPI plugin
to make a special rule that handle lid event. It will
be great to be able to make a rule that change profile
when lid is closed and change again when lid is opened.
The CPU goes hot when lid is closed. Tturning it in low
frequency will reduce temperature and power consumption.

    Of course it is possible! I'll also implement it asap, it's
    very easy.
    BTW: the plugin should deal with all the acpi buttons
    (/proc/acpi/button) having a readable state (as in the lid
    case, maybe others).

    thanks

    hmmm, not much progress on the buttons plugin I planned some
    time ago.
    I'm going to work on cpufreqd in the next days so the
    buttons plugin may suddenly appear.

    stay tuned :)
