This is a FAQ. Please search the archives next time. You need this in loader.conf: debug.acpi.avoid="_SB_.PCI0.PX40.SIO_" Note that the latest ACPI is getting fairly nice. I can suspend and resume multiple times w/o any problems including all sorts of weird insertion and ejections with newcard (which works great with both pccards and cardbus cards on the 5000e). The battery status reporting in the sysctl works, and CPU throttling when the AC adapter is unplugged seems to work as well. The suspend key (Fn-Esc) also works for suspend and resume. There is one rather annoying bug: the ACPI code should discary any pending sleep state changes when it wakes up. For example, I sometimes hit the suspend key instead of the power key to resume, and thus when it does resume, it immediately suspends again, which is annoying. Same thing happens if I suspend via Fn-Esc and then close the lid and try to resume. > Thanks! > Jan -- John Baldwin <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> -- http://www.FreeBSD.org/~jhb/ PGP Key: http://www.baldwin.cx/~john/pgpkey.asc "Power Users Use the Power to Serve!" - http://www.FreeBSD.org/ To Unsubscribe: send mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] with "unsubscribe freebsd-current" in the body of the message
