Disable Advanced power management (APM) on Linux

Q. How can I disable power management on my Fedora Core Linux system?

A. You need to stop APM (Advanced Power Management) service called apmd. It can be stopped by calling /etc/init.d/ script as follows:
# /etc/init.d/apmd stop

If you don’t want this service to return after a reboot type following command and deselect apmd
# ntsysv

Or use chkconfig command:
#/sbin/chkconfig apmd off
