Beginning of dmesg|less (or /var/log/messages if you got lots of errors),
will shows that acpi do things
Only that power managment is not yet there, even in the 2.6 kernel it won
t :
look for swsusp (suspend on disk, it do reboot, though restore the state
beore suspend ( graphics, tools) in a few second.

FYI: acpi include ospm (OS power mangment), pci bus managment, .. it does
manage initialisation of most of your pc component .
The pci managment is near completion, ospm is there (still incomplete as
it all device managment was a requirement for it )

Swsusp: is quite instable (won t loose data, but expect a it not to work
ak without tweaks), the swsusp ML on sourceforge will give you an idea of
whether its stability/features feets your need
