apmsleep doesnt work, and APM is included on my kernel

Well, my objective is to be able to put my machine on sleep mode and make it wakeup at a certain time. I would do that with apmsleep, right? Unfortunately I get this very frustrating message:

bash-2.05b# apmsleep +0:02
apmsleep: Your kernel does not support APM.
apmsleep: Recompile kernel with APM and /dev/rtc support
I Googled, and found that I needed to set my APCI disabled, at the BIOS configuration. I did that, the same error occurred.

Then I read that APCI shouldnt be set neither on the grub or lilo configuration file. Im using lilo, so I edited lilo.conf and added this line to the Linux part:

append = "apci=off"
Then I ran lilo -v , everything fine, rebooted, and... Guess what? Same error message...

Now Im lost, have no idea about what should I do... Is there anything to do with BIOS configuration? Any clues? Please help me! :-) Oh, one more thing, although the APM is included, this /dev/rtc doesnt exists here... And I have no idea about how to set this thing...

Thans in advance!
