For example, APM allows you to set parameters in the operating system to control when various power management features will be activated.The Linux APM Daemon is an advanced power management (APM) daemon and works in conjunction with the APM BIOS driver in the kernel. It can execute a command when certain events are reported by the driver.Most uses of this daemon will use the proxy command to support power conservation activities. This command is searched for in "/etc/apmd/apmd_proxy" and is invoked with one or two arguments.See http://www.comptechdoc.org/os/linux/startupman/linux_suapmd.html.
