acpitool: Information, please

A while back I showed you powertop and yacpi, in way of something to keep you busy, powerwise, at the console.

Here’s another one, although I suspect you might find it less appealing than the others: acpitool.


Reason being, that’s all I can seem to make it do. Even on a machine with much newer specs, it shows only a few more flags and bells.


I suppose there’s nothing wrong with that; (insert divine entity here) knows I’ve shown off programs that had far less to boast in terms of visual appeal.

Perhaps just from my standpoint though, it’s tough to see what would draw anyone to this, over the other two tools.

You try it though and if you get more out of it than I did, please tell me how. 😐
