Package: acpi-support
Version: 0.142-1
Severity: normal

Dear Maintainer,

I notice that since I switched to systemd my laptop do not dim the
backlight when unplugging the power cord.

According to me this is due to two things:

    - acpid wrongly calls power.sh without argument (I had to install
      consolekit for power.sh to be called because it uses
      ck-list-sessions, that's maybe another bug).

    - the test CheckPolicy checks for HasLogindAndSystemd1Manager but
      if I am not mistaken systemd does not handle battery events.

Thus power.sh exits and pm-powersave is never called.

Thank you for your time!
