    APM dell inspiron 5150

    when I try to load the APM module it says there is an error, also when I compile it into the kernel I cant start the APM in the init.d script it says that APM is not build into the kernel. Im running gentoo on a laptop and would really like to have a suspend mode. Is there another solution for this.
    The computer made me do it!! Slackware and SUSE too Gig\'em WHOOOOP!!

    I'm pretty sure the 5150 doesn't use APM, but instead uses ACPI. Try loading the ACPI modules.
