I'm likewise "afraid" that may be too much to expect.

If that's true, it's going to be even harder making
the cross-platform Linux PM framework do what it needs
to do.  Having various devices (not just laptop lids or
power buttons, or RTC alarms) wake systems from low power
states is pretty fundamental to the "P" part of ACPI.
And it's not like wakeup events are unique to ACPI.

I kind of think the ACPI team needs to just become more
responsive.  They helped Windows do this stuff; why has
Linux only seen delays and obstacles in this area?
