Michal Čihař - Cryptic names

Cryptic names

Why the hell do wakeup devices for ACPI need that cryptic names? I'd like to enable wakeup on keyboard, however I have no idea whether my notebook supports is or not. And the names don't help much:

$ cat /proc/acpi/wakeup

USB1       3            disabled
USB2       3            disabled

 LAN       4            disabled

MPC1       3            disabled
