    You need to load the 'apm' module. Either select it with 'modconf' or
    add the word 'apm' to end of /etc/modules on a new line.

    Hmm, does your machine by any chance have more than one processor?
    If so, I think you need to add some other options to your append line
    in /etc/lilo.conf. Something like append="apm=power-off".

    Nope!

    Actually, I have that allready... I have append="apm=on apm=power-off"
    because it has been suggested to me before...

    It still doesn't do the trick...
