No, it works as a module for me.

So do I.

This solved the same problem for me.
The parameter depends on your kernel:
For 2.2, add this to lilo.conf:
For 2.4, add this to /etc/modules:
	apm power_off=1
assuming that your 2.4 kernel has APM as a module (kernel-image-2.4.18-k7 has).

Can't remember where I read this (probably on this list).

Also, you may need to enable "Power Management by APM" or similar in the BIOS.

I hope this helps.
