How important is that specific filename? I assume it is simply to
determine in which order the scripts are executed... any specific reason
why it should be executed early?

I still have my case statement in there, to not switch if it is currently
on tty[1-9]. It seems to work very well if I use "apm -s" as root, but if
I close the laptop display, it doesn't switch and it locks up... any
