Everyone I've talked to has had bad experiences with ACPI under Linux,
but the older APM support tends to work fairly well in most cases. If
you don't already have /proc/apm, you should be able to 'modprobe apm'
to get power-management support. You probably also want to install
the apmd package for userspace power-management support.
