Strange Power Management Problem
I just got a new computer and installed slackware 10.2 on it. When I shutdown everything seems to turn off (cpu fan stops, monitor turns off, computer makes no sounds) except my usb mouse is still glowing... I know on my old computer when it shutdown it would leave a message on the screen saying something like "now safe to shut off power" and I had to add apm to my rc.modules file but I have apm built right into the kernel on this machine. I'm using the 2.6.13 kernel found in /testing recompiled for high-mem support (that was the only change I made). Here's the output of some stuff that might help:
I googled the "apm: overridden by ACPI." thing, and it seems APM is sort of an older version of ACPI? I've tried with APM built into the kernel, as a module, and without it completely and nothing seems to work.
root@slackware:/boot# modprobe apm
FATAL: Module apm not found.
root@slackware:/boot# dmesg | grep "apm"
apm: BIOS version 1.2 Flags 0x07 (Driver version 1.16ac)
apm: overridden by ACPI.
No APM support in kernel
Any help would be appreciated!
