  * owner:  pgf => dsd


 the culprit is systemd-logind.  if we can't just turn it off (does it do
 anything useful, for us?), then i think we have two choices:

   - edit /etc/systemd/logind.conf, and change all of HandlePowerKey=,
 HandleSuspendKey=, HandleHibernateKey=, and HandleLidSwitch= to "ignore".
   - or, since the logind.conf docs say "Only input devices with the power-
 switch udev tag will be watched for key/lid switch events.", then i think
 we can also simply do this:
 rm /usr/lib/udev/rules.d/70-power-switch.rules
 since that's where all ACPI events get the "power-switch" tag.

 (i've only tested the second option.)
