APM wont work with ACPI enabled

I just upgraded to 2.6.5 and I've found that when I enable only APM, if I hit the power button for less than 4 seconds, it does what the BIOS tells it to do and it goes into suspend; however, if I enable ACPI, when I hit the power button, my system just shuts off. Ive tried removing the "ACPI Button" freature in the kernel, but leaving everything else on, but that didn't help. I want both, so that I can go into suspend and turn of my PC without hitting the power button. If anyone knows how I can do this, or go into suspend using just ACPI, then that would be very helpfull.

-Thanks in advance.

start from stock configure, and just ensure apm is enabled. don't squiggle with anything else. mine takes 5 or 10 seconds longer than the 2.4.25 (which i DONT consider an improvement), but does just fine. actually, if your original distro used 2.4 kernel, you should see best performance with 2.4.25, unless the system is a 2.5 devel or 2.6 stable specific release oriented OS, let the nerd wierdos thrash around with the 2.6 kernel.. fat chance, eh?
luck 0.

Thats what I did, I did make menuconfig, enabled riserfs because I use that, and enabled ACPI.
