I'm using a Desktop Pentium 200MMX RH 6.2 file server on a small LAN
with Samba; no problems there, but I cannot get the 20 GB Western
Digital hard drive (or any part of the system) to go into low-power
mode after inactivity.
After setting the BIOS to use APM and a setting of say 5 min. it works
when booting from a DOS floppy, but not in RH 6.2 LINUX.
I've tried passing the lilo of "apm=on" or "off" no difference. I'm
running the apmd. Even tried "apm suspend" and it just blanks the
monitor, no HD sleeping.
Any ideas as to what I'm doing wrong and how to put the system into
Thank you for any help!
