It seems like apm is on for power mgmt.
when I cat /proc/apm it's there.
hmm, weird - i looked up your laptop (thinkpad x23, yes?) and I read
it's only ACPI - perhaps the site I read was simply wrong. are you sure
APM is actually working (i.e., it sees your battery, is handling
throttling/power-control, etc.) ?
also, did using acpi=off fix your sound card issue?
I got the part about acpi only being on for device enumeration from the
red hat release notes for severn.
