Acer Aspire 6920 - Hibernate

Postby Kaye on Tue Feb 10, 2009 7:48 pm

Hey everyone, me again!

Today I tried to put my laptop into hibernate mode for the first time since installing Felicia. I wasn't sure what to expect, but it ended up not working out too well. The screen turned black for about a minute, then flashed green, back to black and said something along the lines of "LNXPOWER failed" and gave an error code of -8 (the error code is exact). I had to restore my system to the last working configuration to get it working again. Is there any way for me to fix this?

Thanks, Kaye.

Fix this? Nope, not that I've been able to find, anyway. Suspend doesn't work, either. Even shutting down, on the odd occasion, doesn't work. I *think* they all worked in Elyssa; suspend and shut down did, anyway. I have an Acer Aspire 7520.

Ah, I see. I guess I'll just have to settle for locking it to keep the screen darkened.

On another note, did you ever have a problem with headphones? Such as, the sound would still play through the speakers when you had headphones plugged in? I had to patch the sound myself using OSS, I don't know if you had to do that or not.

Thanks for the response, Kaye.
