APM for Linux on intel desktop

Hi All,

I wanted to know if APM can be used for power off on Desktop computers. I have an intel desktop with pentium II CPU. If yes, how do I activate suspend/resume mode on a desktop. I have APM option enabled in my BIOS. Is there any thing else I need to do.

Please help. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks & regards,

try "man apm" It will tell you the commands for apm. I think that suspend is "apm -s" or "apm -S". One of them is suspend, the other is sleep.

it works just like bludra84 said, but first you will have to enable the support for APM in kernel (if you didn't done that already). Try running:
modprobe apm

(as root ofcourse). And to make it permanent, find rc.module file under the /etc directori, open it and search for a string that goes something like:
/sbin/modprobe apm

and ucomment it.
