How do the kill switches work?
#1
So I got my PBPro today, and (like many others) it had all of the kill switches enabled.

I know that pressing the kill-switch combo does something, but I have no idea how it works.  Is it some fancy ACPI magic? A special kernel module?

The most pressing question I have is: how can I tell if a particular kill-switch is currently active or not?
