There is a kernel compile option for APM, probably be sure it isn't
available in the kernel. There is in /etc/rc.d/init.d a script for start
and stop of several services, of which apmd is one. Although I don't
suggest removing this script or the sym links at various run levels to
this script (my system has these but doesn't run apmd), probably reading
the script would give you an idea of where in the system the actual
config is found to decide if apm should or should not be disabled.
Somewhere you might have a file that contains something similar to
"apmd=1" (just a sample, don't know if this really exists).
