BTW, you can use only APM or only ACPI, but not both.

Sounds like it - I'm guessing not many people use just console mode Linux. Let me post an answer that may be relevant.

Are you using APM or ACPI for power management? I've noticed that with APM the behavior you're looking for is available out of the box. I have yet to figure out how to get that behavior with ACPI. I'm wondering if you were using APM with your Slackware installation, and ACPI with Gentoo now.
