APM does not work on Powerbook or iBooks because Apple doesn't support APM.
APM is a x86-only thing.

To make powermanagement working on an Apple Laptop you need pbbuttonsd (and 
maybe the related packages gtkpbbuttons and powerprefs).

You might want to switch on Kernel's APM emulation to make some APM monitors 
for ex. Batterymonitors) working. But you can't suspend your machine through 
this interface.
