I have APM and use wmapm. It partially works: it detects whether I'm
plugged in or not, and the battery meter works too. The sleep, and
hybernate, buttons don't work though. Oh and I'm running kernel 2.4.7
on an IBM Thinkpad A21m.

I don't use AIM or ICQ, so I can't hlp you there. The applets I have
normally running are:

wmapm: APM control and display
wmCalClock: calendar and clock
wmppp: ppp control and siplay
wmifs: netwrok activity display
wmbiff: fancy biff applet
wmix: sound control
wmxmms: XMMS launcher

I'm also looking for a good applet to check on system activity,
memory, etc
