Notebooks (and other uniprocessors) get power-off in Solaris 10

A putback notification I've been waiting for for quite a while now happened yesterday.

The uppc driver (uniprocessor) now has ACPI power-off functionality. It will appear in build 69.

I just run an update onto my Dell Inspiron 8500 and it works fabulously.

I can now just type


# init 5

just before getting off the train, pack the notebook up into it's back and be assured that it will actually power off without me having to hit the power button.

Thanks Andrew Gabriel for doing the work on it.
