The ACPI layer doesn't send X keycodes. The power key ought to generate
linux keycode 116 (KEY_POWER) - how that's mapped to an X keysym will
depend on the X keymap. If it's generating something other than 116,
then that's probably something that needs fixing...
(Note that X and Linux keycode are entirely different, and the mapping
between them is massively non-trivial)
