Clamshell sleep.

Most portable system don't sleep on closing the LID, I tried to find a DSDT fix for it but cannot find it. (google is my best friend.) so I wrote 1 to fix my own.

If you have a better or alternative method, please let me know. Thanks.

Device (LID0)
Name (_HID, EisaId ("PNP0C0D")) //LID detection
Method (_PRW, 0, NotSerialized)
Return (Package (0x02)
Name (LIDS, One)
Method (_LID, 0, NotSerialized)
Store (^^PCI0.SBRG.EC0.SF13, LIDS) //LID register
XOr (LIDS, One, Local0)
IF (Local0) //if LID is closed
Notify (SLPB, 0x80) //Set system to sleep
Return (LIDS)

LID device should be easy to find, just need to add a line to notify the system to sleep.

On most system, (I think) depends on the OS to set the system to sleep bit OS X don't understand the notification sent by the LID device, so I did it in the hardware instead.
