 I think that's the key.  When I first got my laptop, it wouldn't
 suspend and resume right, until I rebuilt with apm enabled.  Then
 everything worked fine.

 I had to grep the net for a version of phdisk.exe that would format a
 suspend partition for me...  It would be neat to have a phdisk.exe
 for Linux.

 I'd also like to be able to switch apm modes from X... on Windows,
 which was installed when I bought it, there was a toolbar for
 changing apm settings.  `kcmlaptop' is pretty good, but doesn't have
 as much control as that windows panel did.
