much more simple (and right) way exists to remove APM

Can you please elaborate further on this? Removing all power management functions might be useful in some situations with newer hardware.

Of course.

Here is original post.

The translation:

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Detect]
"IgnorePnPBIOS"="1"
(string value)
 
If this is "1" then disable any PnP (ACPI BIOS and PnP BIOS). If this is "0" (or absent) then will work well known ACPIOption.
So use the next table to switch:
"IgnorePnPBIOS"="1" - PnP disabled
"IgnorePnPBIOS"="0" and  "ACPIOption"=dword:00000002 - use PnP BIOS
"IgnorePnPBIOS"="0" and  "ACPIOption"=dword:00000001 - use ACPI BIOS
 
Of course, don't forget to full redetect your hardware in control panel after any changes.

P.S. This registry key is exactly what "setup /p i" does. And it is actual for Win95 also.
