ACPI panel: where is it?

Dell i700m MEPIS 3.4.3-rc3 KDE 3.4.3

I have download the ACPI packages and all its dependencies; now I want use it. Under control center power control only laptop battery exists (NO ACPI panel), and in this it keeps telling me that I may need to enable ACPI suspend/resume in the ACPI panel.

Where is the panel? What do I need to do to get this going?

Thanks once again.

sorry i have no idea about KDE panel bt it might not appear till you get stuff kicking.
you got acpi stuff turned on in your kernel ??
look in /proc/acpi/
i would imagine all KDE panel is going to do is manipulate sysfs
echo mem > /sys/power/state
and see if your box goes to sleep

if you are loading up APM it and ACPI can't get along so you might have to
apm=off acpi=on or something in your boot parameters.
