APM v. ACPI
 
Could someone explain the difference between ACPI and APM for me? Are they different programs/services that serve the same goal or do they have different purposes?

Thanks

They're two mutually exclusive methods of power control for, mainly, laptops.

A google search will get you a lot of information on this topic.

Good luck,

John
