I don't think so. I thought it was APM stuff, but over Christmas,
when it was working just fine, I know I had the WindowMaker APM widget
loaded, so APM was in the kernel. I don't recall changing any BIOS
settings except for SpeedStep, which I've toggled to and fro many
times now with no effects.

I am going to see if it happens without APM kernel support.
unfortunately, ACPI is not an option with these incompetent dickheads
at Dell not able to write a proper BIOS. excuse my french, please!

nope. none of that.
