I finally got apm_bios to blank my screen with no error msgs.
In apm_bios.c, I set APM_SET_DISPLAY_POWER_STATE "b" to 0x0100 instead
of 0x01ff.
The screen backlight would go off, but then come back on in about 1 min.
After many printk's I disabled rtc support in the kernel. That did the
Still does not work with X, but that is another problem.
I also noticed in console.c that apm screen blanking is called if
CONFIG_APM is set. Shouldn't this be ifdef CONFIG_APM_DISPLAY_BLANK ?
Auto suspend also works.
