Default FreeBSD ACPI Power Management, 7.2-release

First I will say that as far as my laptop is concerned power management in 7.2 is dramatically better than it was in 6.x. My laptop now sleeps properly (with the zzz command) and comes around successfully (mostly).

However there are two small issues I am trying to solve.

First, my mouse daemon still dies when I come back out of suspend, I have to 'kill -HUP' to get it back. Is there a way to automate this? I would like to be able to invoke 'zzz' as a non-root user (without sudo preferably) and have it reinitialize the mouse daemon automatically. Currently I have to sudo for zzz and then of course sudo again to 'kill -HUP' on the mouse daemon.

Second, I can't find a way to get my laptop to automatically go to sleep when I close the lid. FreeBSD recognizes the lid switch, but I can't seem to associate it with 'zzz'. I use KDE as my desktop environment, and in power management I can associate actions with closing the lid but suspend is not a choice that it gives me.
