What I've read so far:

My laptop runs Sarge with KDE3.1 from Sid. Most of the above seems to be
correct, but in the power mgmt department I experience some deviations:

- fn+Z freezes the machine if X (4.2.1 without DRI) is running
- closing the lid doesn not freeze it, but the CPU, interrupt handling all
seem to be suspended, but it stays hot and the fan goes on (end when it is
opened the clock is lagging)
- sometimes the CPU clock speed is reduced to 1200, but I don't know why

It is with 2.4.20 + apm. Also:

- the buttons next to the power button are not useable, not even with lineakd

Anyone with similar experience? Or preferably better setup?

Ok, I do not know that machine you use, so I might step into something by this... First, the "state of the art" implies to me that the machine is comparably new. Are you sure you have support for apm? In your case there might be a better idea to take the deep dive into the ACPI ocean. I've set up my old Thinkpad for ACPI, and it works very nice for me. At least it satisfies my needs.

Take a look at ACPI.
