acpidock* at acpi?
driver supports ACPI docking
stations. Docking stations are units that, for example, laptops may attach to
in order to expose a number of additional hardware devices. The
driver handles docking and
undocking machines to gracefully detach external devices.
When docking and undocking, an event is passed to the driver which is then
reacted upon. For undocking, this event is usually triggered by pressing a
button on the docking station or using a special keyboard combination; for
docking, the machine usually just has to be inserted.
driver sets up a sensor that
indicates docking state that can be used with
to perform events
when docking or undocking.
