[UFO Chicago] APM on sid

 I nuked the partition table on my HDD a few days ago,
so had to reinstall everything. Just for kicks, I
installed Mandrake 8.0 on the PC. Before this, I had
Win98/2k/Debian Sid on this machine, and only 98
actually 'powered off' when I shut down the OS.
Mandrake, also, powered off when I did 

shutdown -h now.

Being the debian addict I am, I installed Sid again.
This time I'm running kernel 2.4.7, and I still can't
get it to power down (I've tried running/not running
apmd (which I guess shouldn't matter as all programs
are killed before power down anyway)). I guess my
questions are:

1. Why does Mandrake power down while Debian doesn't.
2. How do I find out what compilation options the
mandrake folks used to compile their kernel?
