Last time I checked, it was a radeon driver issue.  You really have to 
break down your whole system config and look at each piece.  Almost 
always it ends up being an upstream issue especially when dealing with 
hardware issues like this.  Screens melting and locking X have been 
around a *long* time (since Redhat 7.2); just gotta wait until the 
related upstream projects pull flank and take care of all the details. 
(acpi, radeon, etc.)

The hacks in /etc/sysconfig/apmd, although interesting, don't cover 
everything under the moon. So, I wouldn't take APM breakage to mean a 
definite distro problem.

take care,
