    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

    1: 10 XT-PIC i8042
    2: 0 XT-PIC cascade
