Hi, This might have been posted before, but I couldn't find it in the archives... I'm having trouble getting apm to work on my laptop. apm -s (suspend) works (although slightly differently than Windows), and when I resume, the following occurs: * the display remains blank * the network is down * the system responds to the keyboard By restarting the interface, I can get the network to respond, so I am able to ssh in from another machine and take a look. I can manually activate the backlight, but the screen is displaying patches of multicoloured vertical bars. It seems that I can make a particular device work by resetting it (pcmcia, sound, etc.,) but I have not found a way to reset the display. BTW, I am suspending from the console. I've played with the different kernel options for the apm module, but they seem to be geared toward working around a machine that totally hangs; in any case, I have had no luck changing these settings. ------------ # uname -r 2.4.5-586 (this is the debian kernel-image-2.4.5-586 package) ------------ apm options: CONFIG_APM=m CONFIG_APM_IGNORE_USER_SUSPEND is not set CONFIG_APM_DO_ENABLE is not set CONFIG_APM_CPU_IDLE is not set CONFIG_APM_DISPLAY_BLANK is not set CONFIG_APM_RTC_IS_GMT=y CONFIG_APM_ALLOW_INTS is not set CONFIG_APM_REAL_MODE_POWER_OFF is not set Does anyone know of a way to fix this problem? I can provide more information on the system, if needed. -Mike Alborn firstname.lastname@example.org http://odoitau.dyn.dhs.org -- Don't shout for help at night.
