Yes. The event is generated by the *kernel*, in particular the 
sony-laptop module. Thus, it does not pass through the socket.

Probably some systemctl incantation is necessary? I did
	systemctl enable acpid
and after that now at reboots the acpid is running, as expected.

I guess that something like this needs to be added to the
postinst (?) script.

I am not sure about how transition from sysV to systemd should
actually work. The transition should take the status of current
acpid into account ... no idea how all this should work together!

(A sad story that Debian Developers don't know anymore how to work
on some of the most essential parts of the system - shiny new world
of systemd :-(
