Only one will run. Because you can have ether APM or ACPI support,
the service for the support being used runs, and the other service
aborts. The reason to have both services enabled is so that if you
use the boot command line to change between them, the correct
service runs. It also helps if you move the hard drive to another
system, and it supports a different power management then the system
you installed it on. Then there are the systems where ACPI and/or
APM is broken.

Once I have a system up and runningm I normally turn off the service
that is not being used, but it does not slow booting down much to
have both enabled.
