Re: Suspend without ACPI support - ACPI support
Thanks for your reply.
Do you mean that you *have* to reboot your machine every week or so
because of these "problems"? What sort of "problems" do you have on
suspend/resume? (other than the ones you've just told me about).
What about the "resume" feature? What does it need to resume the
computer to a fully working state?. I guess "good" drivers is one
thing, but I wonder if it *needs* to have a good ACPI<->BIOS<->kernel
relationship in order to work correctly.
Are you aware of other people's results, specially with other models?
(what about Inspiron 5150?).
