    Ugh...I was just trying to change a friend's motherboard and I stumbled on the fact that Windows XP is a ***** with APM.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but if I remember right, once you install Windows XP, it isn't possible to change the power management (unless you reinstall). It has to do something with the fact that it is too deeply integrated into the OS.

    You have to make sure it is enabled in the BIOS before you install Windows, otherwise you'll get that "Standard" business.

    I bet it does. Look in your bios for APM or ACPI.
    They needed to be enabled when you installed windows.

    well i been reading up on this..
    it is possible to do it after windows is installed but.. it involes alot of file hacking and all sorts of dangerous ****..

    what i had to do was reinstall windoes and when it says "press f6 to install some rad driver" u press F5. and another menu opens and u have to select what type of install u want and u must click the "acpi install" and it works sweet now
