I was writing the answer to the mailinglist, while I found the error...
> Power Management is a kernel function, you need to enable it in the
This told me, that the only error could be somewhere in the Kernel
configuration, but I was sure I built the kernel exactly as I did at Debian
To be really sure (and looking if ACPI was turned off) I compared the
Debian-Kernel-Config to the LFS-Kernel-Config, and found the difference: I
didn't switch off SMP-Support, with turning this off the system powers off. I
was never so happy to see my PC turning off ;-).
Because you wanted to extend the FAQ: APM works as a module (for my computer),
without any parameters, and even if ACPI ist turned on it works.
These are my complete (APM) settings:
<M> Advanced Power Management BIOS support
[ ] Ignore USER SUSPEND
[*] Enable PM at boot time
[*] Make CPU Idle calls when idle
[*] Enable console blanking using APM //this switches off the screen
[ ] RTC stores time in GMT
[ ] Allow interrupts during APM BIOS calls
[ ] Use real mode APM BIOS call to power off //with this option turned on
power off didn't work on debian, with LFS I didn't ever turn it on
So thanks again for everyone spending a thought on my problem.
If you need more information to extend the FAQ I would be glad to help!
