[talk] apmd issue last night

Just a quick fyi/cya note here.

If you look at OpenBSD apmd(8), you won't see -C listed.  It was
deprecated at some point IIRC.  The correct flag to have in
/etc/rc.conf.local is:


This will autoadjust the sysctl knob hw.setperf depending on how the
laptop is powered.

But then again, this is in current, and Ike is using the release IIRC.

The other relevant sysctl is machdep.lidsuspend=1, which can now be set
during the install.

Therefore, I have no idea why Ike's laptop didn't resume!
