    You need to enable ACPI get the rpm installed frist
    Code:
    urpmi apci
    also have a look at apci how-to here

    acpi also include lots of information when installed
    Code:
    man acpi

    You will need to install acpi and acpid. Next, make sure that acpid is set to start at bootup and that apmd is not. This can all be done w/ MCC.

    After you're sure you have acpi up and running, go to KDE Control Center and select power management > battery. You shouldn't have access to anything. On the very last tab is a program that will allow you access to the options on the other tabs. After you run that (it's called like setguid helper or something), go to the other tabs.

    Power Management in Linux is still rather new, and I can almost guarentee that not all options will work. Test and disable any that don't. For example, suspend and sleep on my system don't work, but hibernate does.

    Well... What works? Like I said, all three aren't going to work. Of the three, hibernate, sleep and suspend, you'll be really lucky if one of them works.

    Try them on the command line and report the results.

    You echo the sleep level to the /proc/acpi/sleep process. For example, hibernate is S4, so you would

    Code:
    echo 4 > /proc/acpi/sleep
    More info can be found here:

    I believe that MDK ACPI comes with a more correct version of these commands. I'll look when I get home, but this should get you started.
