A follow up to my previous question here: Run a Script when Power Button is Pushed

So I am able to detect ACPI events and I intercept the power button press appropriately, however there is an indeterminate amount of time between the power button being pressed and the script actually running. In some cases, there is a minute-long delay between when I physically push the button and when the script gets run. In others, the script runs almost immediately after I press the button.

What could cause such a delay in the event propagation?

  • I have exactly the same problem under Debian with a 3.2.0-4-amd64 Kernel. When this happens I see in /var/log/syslog the following error messages: acpid: netlink read error: No buffer space available (105), acpid: too many errors reading via netlink - aborting. Do you see the same? Did you solve the problem eventually? – cgogolin Dec 8 '14 at 20:54
  • Could you fix it after all? – L29Ah Sep 16 '18 at 22:27
