Ah! Très intéressant! Damn, I don't know why it didn't occur to me to check, I have to boot my workstation without ACPI because of problems with X on my graphics card but it never occured to me to ensure it was disabled on the server. Ok, time to go rummaging but in the meantime (in case a response turns up before I find the answers)... Can I disable ACPI with the server running, or am I going to have to restart? What's the best way to disable ACPI (for unattended booting)? (eg. a hint setting, or requires a recompile, etc.). Incidentally, this isn't the case for the workstation(s), I've definitely had (user) sessions where not even the screensaver has kicked in but ssh connections have still died when left idle for long enough. Besides which I get the same behaviour when running putty.exe under Windows. _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
