acpi support? 2.6

I am trying to trim down my 2.6 kernel. Do I need acpi support? It says ACPI_THERMAL is needed to protect the processor. I am using a desktop. Where would I check to see if my computer used acpi. It is a hp pavillion 533w

acpi is used for powermanagement (and may be other functions!)
If u dont require powermanagement using acpi or dont want to shutdown ur pc when u press the powerbutton, then disable acpi.

u can also use apm for powermanagement
