Description Luca Bonomi 1999-06-23 08:53:57 UTC
This might reopen Bug #2396

I have installed the latest apmd package:
<68> rpm -qa|grep apm
apmd-3.0beta5-8

My timezone is:
/etc/localtime -> ../usr/share/zoneinfo/Europe/Copenhagen

My hwclock is set to localtime.

Running apm -s (or -S) puts the machine time two hours ahead
after wake up. No changes are made to the timezone.

I see the same problem on some of my machines, which happen
to enter sleep mode after a while. I wonder why some of them
enter sleep mode, while others do not, since I have followed
the same installation procedures and all the motherboards
respond to apm.
Is there any other way to control the suspend mode? Is that
buggy as well?
