Monitor Logs and email with activity?

I have a server with a faulty power button that likes to reboot itself. Usually there are warning signs, like the acpid log file in /var/log starts spamming garbage for about 10hrs or so.

Is there an easy way I can have something monitor the acpid log and email me when it has new activity?

I wouldn't consider myself extremely advanced so any "guides" you may have for accomplishing something like this would be very helpful and much appreciated. Thank you!

there are many tools to read log files and email it somewhere..if that is what you mean. Alternatively search ebay for a new power button?
