Following the change introduced by rev 1.206 of GENERIC_LAPTOP, I tested
it with one of my laptop. With an old 3.99.21, APM was working fine (ie.
when I pressed the power button, the laptop went to sleep mode). Now,
it seems that the 'apm -z' command calls the ACPI sleep routine (to enter
in S3 mode). The problem is that the laptop does not support ACPI S3.

If I run the 'apm -S' command, the laptop goes in S1 sleep mode, but
never come back (hard reset needed).

Another bug with recent (less than 3 days old) system: if I use the 'apm'
command to display information relative to APM, the "A/C adapter state"
field never change if I unplug the A/C adapter.

I guess I will need to remove any ACPI related line in my kernel config.

Any comments ?
