Advanced Power Management

Advanced Power Management (APM) is an API developed by Intel and Microsoft which enables an operating system running an IBM-compatible personal computer to work with the BIOS (part of the computer's firmware) to achieve power management.

ACPI is intended as the successor to APM. Microsoft has dropped support for APM in Windows Vista.
