    Unfortunately, this doesn't fix the APM problems on my ThinkPad
    310ED. I've tried all sorts of BIOS changes, running with and without
    apmd, with and without floppy driver, and with and without various
    config options (including the ignore multiple suspend one).

    To again repeat, the problem is that suspend and hibernate do not
    work. I can use the Fn hotkeys, or the appropriate apm --suspend (or
    similar) command and get the same result when requesting either
    standby or suspend: the system beeps, the hard disk is shut off, the
    screen goes blank for about 1.5 seconds, then the screen comes back
    on, the hard disk comes back on, and the system beeps again. Nothing
    I do can make these features actually work. Ideas??

    Yes, I've tried enabling debugging in the driver but it didn't seem to
    produce anything relevant.
