I had the APM emulation but not the /dev/apm_bios (Char major 10 minor
134). But after testing Pau's XF86Config-4 file I made it work :-). The
only thing now is that pbbuttons does not put the machine into sleep when
closing the lid. I have to do it manually using a program that sends the
PMU_IOC_SLEEP ioctl to /dev/pmu (I saw it in the snooze source code :-)

So sleep works fine now wether I'm in X or console. Sweet work!! Thanks a
