Description Peter Quiring 2005-07-02 21:44:41 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.8) Gecko/20050524 Fedora/1.0.4-4 Firefox/1.0.4

Description of problem:
There is no support for Dell Inspiron 5150 APM in kernel.
Running 'apm' just reports 'No APM Support in Kernel'.
Using ACPI does work (echo -n mem >/sys/power/state) will put it into suspend mode.  So I'm using that and it's good enough for me.
Just installed 2.6.12 - no change.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install latest kernel
2.Run 'apm'
3.Get 'No APM Support in Kernel'

Actual Results:  No APM Support in kernel

Expected Results:  apm puts laptop into sleep/standby/suspend/etc modes.

You can't have ACPI and APM active at the same time. If you want to use apm, you
need to boot with acpi=off.
