I suspect it's a problem similar to one I've been having, and am investigating. I upgraded to X.org 7.3, and have since then had problems with ACPI events screwing up my X session (to the point that it make the OS as a whole pretty much stop working except via SSH for remote access). I have problems with not only sleeping, but also starting X if my laptop is running on its battery (thus with scaled-down power usage) instead of being plugged in. Even when starting X (successfully) while plugged in, however, it puts some interesting garbage on my screen for a few seconds before it starts working properly. -- CCD CopyWrite Chad Perrin [ http://ccd.apotheon.org ] Isaac Asimov: "Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that, once it is completely programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest." _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
