acpidock* at acpi?
acpidockdriver 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
acpidockdriver 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.
acpidock driver sets up a sensor that
indicates docking state that can be used with
sensorsd(8) to perform events when
docking or undocking.
acpidockdriver first appeared in OpenBSD 4.1.
