Can't say, as I have never done that. I haven't felt the need to. I turn it on 
when I need to, and turn it off again when I don't need it any more.

So from my perspective apm "works" as long as the fans start up before the cpu 
burns a whole through the keyboard.

ACPI didn't do that before kernel 2.6, so the way I saw it, APM worked and 
ACPI didn't. Now I get even better power management with ACPI, so now I only 
run that.
