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 ...)?
