Hm. I just added more RAM to my ThinkPad and now apm -z works no more.
Before, the machine entered hibernation mode (BIOS saved all RAM on the
hard disk), but now the RAM contents aren't saved on disk and the system
keeps running. Only the hard disk and display are turned off; DRAM
refresh continues (and power consumption remains high).
Oh well.. :-/
