After testing with kacpimon I could get acpid working on one system
and determined that power button stops producing any events after
resume and has to be reloaded on the other.

This looks like a kernel/configuraion issues, not something acpid can solve.

Still this is partially fallout of moving the powerbtn.sh script
between packages. On the first system the button probably did not work
because I had the /etc/acpi/events/powerbtn.dpkg-old file. I got this
by upgrading from fresh Lenny to sid kernel and acpid.
