Cool ??? Warning in X.org X11 Log (WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or

here is the only warning i'm getting at start-up (bold highlight below): (WW) Open APM failed (/dev/apm_bios) (No such file or directory)

it says there is no such file or directory, however everything seems to be loading fine on the dual head setup and is sustainable through multiple reboots. the Advanced Power Management (APM) is disabled. your comments would be appreciated.

Thats only for advanced power management. Its obsolete. DPMS is what you use now.
If you are like me and hate that error message, just add Option "NoPM" to your ServerLayout.
