CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE: Enable PM at boot time

General informations

The Linux kernel configuration item CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE has multiple definitions:

Enable PM at boot time found in arch/i386/Kconfig

The configuration item CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE:

Help text

Enable APM features at boot time. From page 36 of the APM BIOS specification: "When disabled, the APM BIOS does not automatically power manage devices, enter the Standby State, enter the Suspend State, or take power saving steps in response to CPU Idle calls." This driver will make CPU Idle calls when Linux is idle (unless this feature is turned off -- see "Do CPU IDLE calls", below). This should always save battery power, but more complicated APM features will be dependent on your BIOS implementation. You may need to turn this option off if your computer hangs at boot time when using APM support, or if it beeps continuously instead of suspending. Turn this off if you have a NEC UltraLite Versa 33/C or a Toshiba T400CDT. This is off by default since most machines do fine without this feature.
