Re: [FC2] How do I suspend?



I also have bad experiences with ACPI on a Dell Inspiron 8200:

- The boot-sccreen just takes half the size of the display just as the
"normal" terminal-screens do.

- The "suspend" and "setup" buttons do not work anymore

- echo -n "mem" > /sys/power/state works but on powewr-up, the screen is
flickering...
