I /believe/ it only disables APM. Either that, or what it disables, KDE
later enables due to the settings I have in it. In any case, it works the
way I expect, that being I don't get the warning, but my monitors continue
to go into power saving mode after the usual timeout, in X/KDE.
Naturally, try it. If it works for you, use it. If it doesn't, don't.
However, I can't see that specifically turning off something that the
warning says is disabled anyway, thus avoiding that warning, will change
anything except getting the warning. <g>

Google is very cool for this sort of thing, indeed. =8^)
