NT40 does not support APM (advanced power management ;-).
M$ claims that NT50 will...
I need to implement some sort of power management functions on a "black box" running NT40 from Flash PROM. I need to be able to run the system 48 hrs with 30% usage. Can anybody help me? Even just a pointer in the right direction would be appreciated.

uh, i cant comment on the flash prom part, but SystemSoft does have a 3rd party APM solution for NT4 called Power Profiler NT.  I've been working with the product manager and lead engineer extensively over the past 2 months, and I have to say, I'm pretty impressed.  The current shipping version is 2.0, 2.1 is expected to be gold on monday.  They also manufacture BIOS, so perhaps they may know something about flash proms as well.  The phone number there is 508-651-0088.  This right now is by far the most complete version of APM available for NTout there (I also have the MS beta for APM and have looked at Phoenix's implementation, and they are WAY behind).
