I am trying to figure out what happens on a soft poweroff? Is there a

If everything works correctly, then acpi driver sends a signal to init which
causes a typical graceful shutdown.
BTW, was this really a question for stable ml?
Probably not. But I spent a couple of hours googling without much luck
so I got desperate. ;-)
Is there a reason it doesn't send and event like Linux that can be
acted upon by user space other
than signaling init? I like to have a message written in
/var/log/messages that someone pressed
