Thanks to a note on /., I found what looks to be a very nice summary of
ACPI and its myriad of states (C, D, G, S, and P). While it does not go
into ASL, the ACPI tables, or things of that sort, it is probably a
good starting place for those interested in just what ACPI is all about.
It filled in some gaps (especially about D and lower C states) for me.

One small request...I am far from an ACPI expert and there may be
serious flaws in the article that I am unaware of. If so, please let me
know so I don't recommend it more widely. IF it looks good, I plan to
post a message about it to mobile at .
