APM 1.1 —>1.2?

Hi!

It seems that I use APM 1.1. However, Smartbar suggests that I should
upgrade to APM 1.2, in order to use their "suspend"-feature. Does anyone
know where ver. 1.2 of APM (apm.sys, I suppose) can be found?

Thanks,

    There is a note about APM in one of the more recent fixpacks, which
    tells you to add a line to CONFIG.SYS. Be sure you have
    "RUN=\OS2\BOOT\APMDAEMN.EXE" in your CONFIG.SYS.

    As I understand it, warp4 (later fix packs, at least) has the code to
    use APM v1.2. BUT, it the APM code in your BIOS is only v1.1, it will
    use the lowest version that is available (I suspect that this is done
    to eliminate conflicts). There was also something about APM being
    broken in FP13 (and, perhaps earlier fix packs), and it is suggested
    that you should disable APM. Then, there is a "fix" for Warp Center
    that has something to do with APM. You can find that where FP13 is,
    at:

    Hope this helps…

    APM lives in your BIOS. You may find that upgrading your BIOS will
    upgrade APM, but it is unlikely as it has some hardware dependencies. A
    new motherboard (or system!) is probably your only option.

    Excerpt from http://www.warpupdates.de/english/hard_powermanage.html

    [...] Since FixPak XR*W035 (Warp 3) resp. XR*M006 (Warp 4) Advanced Power
    Management (APM) BIOS level 1.2 is supported. [...]

    Unfortunately applying *support* for APM 1.2 doesn’t install it, any
    more than, say installing support for a SCSI card installs SCSI, so if
    Jan hasn’t got APM 1.2 in his BIOS, this won’t help.

    Thanks Dough. I have a rather new ThinkPad 380X, so the Bios should be up
    to date. I will check. I do not have my ThinkPad here, but I will check
    the config.sys as soon as I can. I do run fixpak 13, but do not use
    warpcenter.

    Thanks again,

    / Jan
