I have a funny (well I don´t really think it is funny) Problem with S2D
with my Laptop (Targa Traveller 800 - seems to be only sold in germany).
It suspendes like a charm, but then when I wake it up, the system comes
up again (including the last shown picture (X11, fb or Text), but then
the laptop just reboots automatically. I tried it with everything
unloaded (pcmcia, alsa, irda), but it still produces the old behavior.
