You might want the shell script to do =E2=80=98something visible=E2=80=99 f=
testing, for example create a temporary file or something (just so
you know it was actually called).

Uhm. Try without the ^@ and maybe also without the "K". My
acpi_listen output is slightly different, though:

0 09:55 0 ares: ~ # acpi_listen=20
ibm/hotkey HKEY 00000080 00001009

Did you try, for example:

cat /etc/acpi/events/fnf4-suspend
event=3Dbutton/sleep SBTN 00000080 00000000

You do not need to reboot, restarting the acpid (/etc/init.d/acpid
restart) should work just fne.

But pm-utils is installed and also sports the appropriate man pages?

Btw, closing the lid should also trigger an ACPI event which you can
catch, if you like to :)
