(this is a rather common question, though you mightn't know that).
As a general note to the crowd - I'm getting *reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally*
tired of seeing this question, but hearing the lame excuse from our
kernel-image maintainers that it's this way because an occasional
brain-damaged (or way too smart, SMP systems are fragile this way) system
out there hangs when APM is turned on.
Howsabout we start a kernel-image-nn.n.nn-laptop kernel set? Anyone else
like the idea? Then we can turn on all sorts of things that make desktops
