Thanks Mikkel:

Since the notebook is a circa 2005 LC2430x, I suspect the thing to do is
turn off apmd and let acpid run.

The apmd startup script will detect if acpi is running and won't start apmd in that case. You can turn apmd off, but it's not necessary.

If your machine supports both, then acpi will run unless your disable it on the kernel boot line.

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.
