Your kernel does not support APM


Hello together,

I want to use on my laptop apmsleep:
Code:
bash-4.2# apmsleep -S 08:00
apmsleep: Your kernel does not support APM.
apmsleep: Recompile kernel with APM and /dev/rtc support
Code:
bash-4.2# pwd
/usr/src/linux
bash-4.2# make menuconfig
but where can I find this option?

Code:
uname -r 
3.10.17
Release 14.1 Slackware.

arch
x86_64

Thank you very much for your help.

Kind Regards

IIRC, APM is obsolete and has been superseded by ACPI regarding power management.

EDIT Anyhow, CONFIG_APM is not set in kernels for Slackware64-14.1

I get the feeling any laptop that can run 64 bit does need or should be using acpi and may not even support apm. You shouldn't have any apm options in bios.

From freebsd but it ought to be similar.

"ACPI can be used to put the system into a sleep mode with acpiconf(8), the -s flag, and a 1-5 option. Most users only need 1 (quick suspend to RAM) or 3 (suspend to RAM). Option 5 performs a soft-off which is the same action as:"

Bios options may affect this all.

APM was for i486 and older Pentium Pro era CPUs. Everything since Pentium-II/Celeron has used ACPI.
