Hardware failure: power-off
-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
This is almost certainly a hardware problem, but I think readers of this
list are knowledgeable enough to help me.
My laptop shuts down at unexpected times. There are no messages in the
logs at the time of shutdown, but there are some ACPI failures at boot time.
When the power-off occurs, if I reboot the computer, another power-off
occurs very shortly, and so on. It seems I have to let the computer
"cool down" for a while, so I suspect this may be temperature related.
I have started monitoring the laptop temperatures through the
sensors-applet package, and they seem to be within ranges.
Also the power-off are less likely, if gdm3 has managed to start.
I appreciate any advice.
