Yes, it works just fine. You have to have some options in a particular
way, though. I use the following:
If you use menuconfig, these are the corresponding options,
Processor type and features -> Local APIC support on uniprocessors (n)
General Setup -> Power Management support (y)
General Setup -> Advanced Power Management BIOS support (m)
General Setup -> Ignore USER SUSPEND (n)
General Setup -> Enable PM at boot time (y)
General Setup -> Make CPU Idle calls when idle (y)
General Setup -> Enable console blanking using APM (y)
General Setup -> RTC stores time in GMT (y)
General Setup -> Allow interrupts during APM BIOS calls (n)
General Setup -> Use real mode APM BIOS call to power off (n)
If you turn on CONFIG_X86_UP_APIC, then APM won't work.
Oh, and note that APM will be a module, so make sure you load it (use
modconf to configure that).
