Actually APM works fine. Those modules are just useful to control the
extra stuff IBM gives you in the BIOS -- like the ability to turn off
peripherals at a low level for extra power saving, or to react to the

APM suspend and resume works very well, although you have to use an
unaccelerated X server to get hibernation working safely. However the
machine is fast enough that unaccelerated is totally fine unless you're
