The very same has been reported in comp.unix.bsd.openbsd.misc for a
Toshiba Portege 3010 laptop (May 23) with no reply.
Additionally, two or three weeks before, there were several postings
reporting APM problems with the very same signs/ symptoms (no solu-
tions). Hmm, don't remember the OpenBSD versions anymore.
Myself, I'm running 2.9 on a two or three years old Toshiba Satellite
Pro 490 CDT without APM--since, at that time, APM support [screen set-
tings and several BIOS parameters] had to come from Toshiba routines
running on an ms windows partition. Well, and--meanwhile--I'm used
to 'shutdown -hp now'. :)
Also, you may want to remember that it was suggested [in a slightly
different context] to disable APM before installing [some] earlier
versions of OpenBSD to i386 boxen.
