APM is compiled and linked into my kernel. As far as I can tell, APM works fine (/proc/apm shows battery stats etc). ACPI did no seem to work with the M700 when I last tried it using kernel version 2.4.20.

I read somewhere that you can press Ctrl-S to enter the M700 APM/ACPI BIOS menu. I tried it during POST and inside the regular BIOS, but nothing happens. Perhaps I need a BIOS update (which would be easier if I had a floppy drive ...)?

Thanks, Remo
