I tried it on an old 486 laptop with Phoenix bios, and it seems to
behave about the same with and without disabled interrupts. I know
there was some problem with APM 1.1 (which it claims to support) on
this machine, but I can't remember right now (and I didn't notice
anything not working).
Does anyone have a machine that it doesn't work to have interrupts
enabled on? As far as I can tell, the APM spec doesn't say that you
have to disable them.
John, can you shed some light on this?
