       apm - query Advanced Power Management (APM) BIOS

       apm [ -vVmsS ]

       apm  reads  /proc/apm and presents the output in a human-readable format.  Since primarily
       battery status information is provided, this command is most useful on laptops with a com-
       pliant APM BIOS.  apm also allows the machine to be put into standby or suspend mode.

       -V, --version
	      Print the apm program version and exit immediately.

       -v, --verbose
	      Print information about the APM BIOS version and Linux APM driver version.

       -m, --minutes
	      Print total minutes remaining instead of using an hh:mm format.

       -s, --suspend
	      Put the machine into suspend mode if possible.

       -S, --standby
	      Put the machine into standby mode if possible.

       -i, --ignore
	      Tell  the  system to ignore system-generated APM suspend and standby events when on
	      AC power.  This may be useful to users who have laptops and want APM events when on
	      battery power, but not when on AC power.

       -n, --noignore
	      Tell  the system not to ignore system-generated APM suspend and standby events when
	      on AC power.  This is the default mode; this option is provided as a way to undo	a
	      prior "apm -i" call.

       BUGS   This  program requires a post-1.3.57 kernel.  This program will not work with older
	      kernels or with the APM patches, since the format for /proc/apm has  changed  radi-
