NAME

       kacpimon - Kernel ACPI Event Monitor

SYNOPSIS

       kacpimon

DESCRIPTION

       kacpimon  is  a  monitor program that connects to three sources of ACPI
       events:

              1. /proc/acpi/event
              2. netlink
              3. the input layer (/dev/input/event*)

       kacpimon then reports on what it sees while it is connected.

       Use kacpimon to make sure your kernel is  sending  acpi-related  events
       via the three sources mentioned above.

       Since  both  acpid(8) and kacpimon connect to the same sources, be sure
       to stop acpid(8) before running kacpimon.  If you are using upstart(7),
       use  initctl(8)  to  stop  acpid(8).   If you are using systemd(1), use
       systemctl(1) to stop acpid(8).  If you aren't using  either  of  those,
       you can try killall(1) to stop acpid(8).

       Be  sure  to  run  kacpimon  as  root  or else it won't be able to open
       /proc/acpi/event or the input layer:

              sudo kacpimon

       If you want to pipe the output of kacpimon to a file, be  sure  to  use
       the  "Esc"  key  to  exit  rather than Ctrl-C.  Using Ctrl-C will cause
       output to be lost.
