Do an 'lsmod' and see if the apm module is actually loaded.

I dont know the equiv file in debian, but if you have a rc.modules or something along the lines of that, add

'modprobe apm'

so the file loads on boot.

This seems to be a problem with some motherboards and the 2.4.22 and later kernels. I have identical 2.4.24 kernels on 2 different systems. On one system it works perfectly and on the other apm is just ignored. I have just installed a 2.6.3 kernel on the non-working system and it works. Go figure.
