There is too much ground to cover, and besides it is all documented
aready.  You really need to go looking for some of the laptop
resources for linux.  A quick google search found me these:

	http://www.linux.org/hardware/laptop.html
	https://oldwww.losurs.org/docs/rhlibrary/laptop/
	http://www.linux-laptop.net/
	http://www.tuxmobil.org/

wmmv, but they should have something to say about apm management
settings in laptops.

And if it is an IBM, then they also give good support for linux...
you never know, they may also have some technical/faq pages about
this on their site.

Have fun!
