APM Hotfix 05-30-2001
New in 053001...
Pushing power button now puts Windows in standby.
A test program called LOADER is now included. It allows you
to test the
driver without permanently installing it. To use, just run LOADER to load
the driver, press ESC or reboot to unload the driver.
If you have installed a previous version of WPMGXV, please
first (see below).
Make sure you enable Power Management in the BIOS.
You must have the Advanced Power Management driver installed. If the
Standby option in Start->Shutdown isn't available, you probably don't
have it installed. See http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/q188/1/34.asp
If you used the "replace the APM driver with the ACPI driver"
technique, remove the ACPI driver then follow Microsoft's instructions
In severe cases, you may need to re-install Windows to get the Advanced
Power Management driver installed again. Maybe someone knows how to force
To install the driver, either double-click on the install.bat, or
right-click on wpmgxv.inf and select Install. Make sure you reboot
To remove, go into the Control Panel, Add/Remove and select "Virgin
APM Hotfix." Reboot to complete the uninstall.
