SYNOPSIS
       apm [ -VvmMsSdin ]

       This  command requires the Advanced Power Management subsystem.	If run
       without arguments it reads /proc/apm  and  presents  the	 output	 in  a
       human-readable format.

       Given  a	 -S  or -s option it requests that the machine be put into the
       APM standby or the  APM	suspend	 state,	 respectively.	 For  a	 brief
       description of these states, see apmd(8).

	      system kernel.

       -m, --minutes

	      to print the time remaining in "hours:minutes" format.
