The APM subsystem consists of power-management hardware, firmware usually referred to as the APM BIOS and a driver in the operating system kernel. -m, --minutes Print the time remaining as a number of minutes. The default is to print the time remaining in "hours:minutes" format. -M, --monitor Continuously monitor and update the status information. Assumes that the standard output is a terminal. -S, --standby Request that the machine be put into the APM standby state. -s, --suspend Request that the machine be put into the APM suspend state. -d, --debug Print APM status information in a format more useful for debugging.
