Excerpts from Gonzalo Odiard's message of Wed Oct 13 17:33:50 +0200 2010:
HAL has been deprecated  and will not be available anymore at some
point in the future, so I advise against relying on it.
I don't know what the best way to listen to an ebook switch is. acpid
might be worth a look:
>> In addition to rule files, acpid also accepts connections on a UNIX
>> domain socket (/var/run/acpid.socket by default). Any application may
>> connect to this socket. Once connected, acpid will send the text of all
>> ACPI events to the client. The client has the responsibility of
>> filtering for messages about which it cares. acpid will not close the
>> client socket except in the case of a SIGHUP or acpid exiting.
Asking for advice on devkit-devel  might be a good idea as well.
UPower already has a LidIsClosed property (and sends property change
notifications ) so it might be straightforward to add support for
