Obviously because I thought it also had at least some kind of influence on fan 
control. I knew it handled poweroff.

Well I'm sorry. I don't have time to test every component of my system or read 
all the man pages. When I get a configuration that works, I will likely leave 
it at that. I guess most people feel the same way. If the fan control with 
APM was misconception, it should be clear to people now.

I now use ACPI and everything works, except for various leds and hotkeys which 
are supposed to be supported by the acpi4asus patch. I am looking into that 
at the moment, because having led and hotkey control would be kinda cool.
