Buggy acpi

Postby sunnny » Tue Nov 27, 2007 12:34 am

I have a fujitsu p7010 laptop and it has a few problems am i guessing that acpi is the culprit. I'd like to know how to fix these problems, so please help if you can!

1. Shutdown from gnome menu does not completely shutdown the machine. It just sits with the fan running.
2. Closing the lid results in suspend mode? and the computer will not wake up

I'd also like a OS wide spell check if possible.

Thank u!

Possibly acpi, yes
Shutdown from gnome menu does not completely shutdown

From mintMenu I suppose :)
You get hibernate, suspense or something else?
The option noacpi added to the line in menu.lst that contains the kernel could do it.

Code: Select all

kernel  /boot/vmlinuz-2.6.22-14-generic root=/dev/sda7 ro noacpi quiet splash

Closing the lid
In Control Center is an option for power (from my localized version I can't guess what it's called exactly, probably Power handling) In the "General" tab you have an option for the hibernation button and I think the lid switch is such a button
As for an OS wide spell check I don't think I've heard of one - but it's a good idea
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it

have the same problem with an acer tm290 centrino 1,4.... this should be usable with acpi, right?

any other possibilities to solve the problem?

if i disable acpi, won't that affect my battery life?

thanks for the input.
