      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.

      Thanks

      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.

      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.

      fine. I couldn't get the USB mouse to work with later 2.4 kernels...

        You don't have to go all the way back to fc1, just install a 2.4 kernel into fc2 and that will do it.

        > But tell me, do you have any type of suspend working? I am thinking
        I do "apm -s", under my 2.4 kernel, and it works for me. I guess that might be "sleep" and not "suspend", I don't really know. 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.

        Haven't played with that.

        Luck,
