Re: FC2 on i8100. Suspend?
- Thanks for the info. So I am thinking that may be the path I take as
well. Dropping back to fc1.
But tell me, do you have any type of suspend working? I am thinking
about setting up the s2d partion with the utilities.
Let me know if you have had any luck with suspend.

I was having similar problems with resume. I don't think I ever got
the laptop to resume after suspend on FC2 with ACPI (I even tried
latest patches) or APM.

and modprobe/rmmod cycles, it stops detecting firewire devices and
hangs. I filed the following bug for this.

I was able to do this reliably by hitting Fn-d). This had no effect
under ACPI, and under APM it would shut off but then turn right back
on. I think there was some discussion on one of the redhat lists
about this problem, but no resolution. xset dpmi force off did not do
the trick either, it left the backlight on.

under FC1 (from rpm), 2.4.22-1.2188.nptl, and it seems to be working
fine. I couldn't get the USB mouse to work with later 2.4 kernels...

It turns off the screens and stops all noise, which lets me sleep at night. And when running on battery it can last a day in this state, which is also sufficient for me.
