First you need to determine what loaded the modules in the first
place.  Do you have hotplug installed?  Is there any mention of the
modules in /var/log/boot, /var/log/messages or /var/log/syslog?

/etc/modules is used.  /etc/modules.conf (and thus /etc/modutils) are not.

discover is used to discover what hardware your system has and load
the drivers for it.  You don't need discover unless you need that

I don't have any portable Apple machines, but if APM is unavailable,
then that means the display isn't going to shut off even when you
close the lid.  (well, unless the display shutoff is hardware
controlled like the old Dell I get to use sometimes)

Does your system have the 'apm' module loaded?
