Default ACPI and power management

Hello

Is ACPI and power management one and the same thing?

in a way yes...power management in windows gui will have different options the the ACPI in the bios both used for different functions power management is meant for laptops like turning off the screen and hd when trying conserve battery ACPI is more hardware related like turning off PCI slots/LAN
