APM or ACPI on a PowerPC Laptop?

Hey guys,

I am confused as to what power management technology I should be using. When I installed debian etch on this powerpc Apple PowerBook, apm was used as default.

Things are working great here and I have no complaints. However, I understand there is also ACPI, which is newer.

Are there any advantages in switching to ACPI?

Do I need to have hardware support for ACPI? Note this is a fairly old laptop (round 6 years).

Thanks for any help,
