No, sorry, if I created that impression, I was not offended.

Are you sure? Here's what my system says:

michael at feivel:~/Technik/sources/archive/pkg-acpi/acpid$ grep powerbtn debian/acpid.install 
debian/powerbtn                 usr/share/doc/acpid/examples/
debian/powerbtn.sh              usr/share/doc/acpid/examples/

On which version are you?

Yes, the package in question is acpi-support.

Hmm, you got me on that one. It seems I didn't notice that back then. Sigh. :)
