Links to ACPI-related Documents

The Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) specification was developed to establish industry common interfaces enabling robust operating system (OS) directed motherboard device configuration and power management of both devices and entire systems. ACPI is the key element in OS-directed configuration and Power Management (OSPM).

The ACPI specification contains some external references links from other websites that could change on occasion. To help manage the external reference links in the specifications, a master list has been created below. If a link changes, the updated link will be provided in the list below. This change will take place in lieu of creating a new version of the ACPI specification to fix dead links.
