Angry APM Power MGMT wont shut off!!!

I had disabled APMD and still after so long, my monitor will go into power save mode. This is a dual boot machine with winblows 2000. I have power mgmt disabled there and the monitor stays on all the time.

I have AMD 550 / 256 meg ram
Nvidia GTS 2 32 meg
19" kds monitor

Is there something im forgetting to change and edit. Im not a total newb, but this does have me scratching my head alittle. Again, I did disable the apmd service from starting up.

maybe you need to disable APM in the kernel, not only stop the APMD. Just a guess..

I have re-compiled my kernel for various other reasons and I have never seen anything in there for disabling APM. I used make xconfig. Do you know what section it is in. I went all through it tweaking stuff and never saw it in there.

Thanks for the response

Check your lilo.conf. For debian you have to have apm=on in lilo, maybe you have it in yours...

How I got it working...

First off, this is in Slackware 8.0. The stock install wouldn't power the machine down, just halt everything. I googled and got some ideas. What actually got it working was compiling a new kernel that included Power Management in the kernel, and didn't include ACPI (I have ACPI disabled in my BIOS). That's all. the other --APM BIOS power down thing, if you read the help, is for certain problematic motherboards. My KG7-RAID doesn't need it. When I booted my new kernel and then issued 'halt', the computer powered down.

It seems to me that linux shuts down monitor regardless of any apm acpi or any other settings.
