apm -S -d
produces a line that says
System will enter standby mode in a moment
and a kernel messages that says
hpcapm: set power state STANDBY
then the screen goes blank for less than a second
new kernel message
hpcapm: resume

and we appear to be back again as normal, except for my wifi that
is still powered down, which is why I type the output manually.

apm -z -d
produces a line that says
System will enter suspend mode in a moment
then the screen goes momentarily black and then it appears to lock
up completely.

I have been experimenting with MC16 (HP360LX), hpcboot200 and
miniroot (for another purpose). Using a gzipped kernel with a rootfs
inserted with mdsetimage, it boots with wd option selected. This
was a tiny kernel and a small rootfs (only 8MB memory), maybe that
has some kind of influence. However, the version of hpcboot I am
using is in fact the latest, to my knowledgde anyway. It is available
in uuencoded form at:
