Interestingly, this doesn't work for me. But then again, my original
devd.conf fix didn't quite work either. I had restarted devd from
within a shell within X, so it was picking up my DISPLAY environment
variable. After a reboot, that fix no longer worked. I had to change it

notify 10 {
	match "system"          "ACPI";
	match "subsystem"       "Lid";
	action                  "/usr/X11R6/bin/xrandr -display :0.0 -s 0";

And that works perfectly for me.

I've actually seen your website before when doing research before buying
this laptop. Thanks for putting all that information up. It was part of
why I decided to forge ahead with buying something so new. I think you
and I have slightly different laptops though; my onboard wireless card
is an Atheron.
