SubjectACPI vs. APM - Which is better for desktop and why?
I have enabled ACPI on my Dell GX1 (Pentium 3/500MHZ) machine and disabled 
APM, however, what are the benefits of using ACPI over APM?

I am using Kernel 2.6.7

I see ACPI eats up an IRQ and does not share it:

$ cat /proc/interrupts
CPU0
0: 64997374 XT-PIC timer
1: 10 XT-PIC i8042
2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
5: 2625 XT-PIC Crystal audio controller
8: 1 XT-PIC rtc
9: 0 XT-PIC acpi
10: 277489 XT-PIC ide2
11: 11465050 XT-PIC ide4, ide5, eth0, eth1, eth2, eth3
12: 58 XT-PIC i8042
14: 307536 XT-PIC ide0
15: 53 XT-PIC ide1
