Re: apm suspend broken in 2.4.10

Mine displays a similar failure, except my strace shows:

ioctl(3, APM_IOC_SUSPEND, 0 ) = -1 EAGAIN (Resource temporarily

I also noticed (as reported by a previous poster) that whether you pass
"apm=on" or "apm=off" to the kernel, apm gets disabled. When you don't
specify a setting, it's enabled. I had a look at the arch/i386/kernel/apm.c
in 2.4.10 though, and it seemed to make sense.
