Linux apm doesn't handle this. Use hdparm -y to power down the hard
drive. For the power supply, the keyword to look for is "ACPI", which
stands for something like "advanced configuration and <mumble> interface",
and is the successor to APM. Last I checked linux acpi support had a
ways to go before it could do the right thing though.
My solution was to wire the power supply fan down to 7V instead of 12,
remove the P/S cover, slap on two 5$ heatsinks from the local
electronics shop, and put the whole thing on top of my computer rather
than inside it (the cables reach).
