Trying the 20021022 patch to 2.4.20-pre11 on my Dell Latitude C600
(where APM, including suspension, actually is OK except for fan control),
the ACPI battery/fan/ac monitoring seems to be functional. But
echo "1" > /proc/acpi/sleep
puts the laptop promptly to sleep, but I can't find any way to
reawaken it. Pressing the power button briefly does nothing;
pressing it for longer turns the power off. Other buttons seem
to do nothing.
Is there anything I can do to track this?
I might get most syslog messages to survive the power-cycle if
I make syslogd write to a vfat partition; would those help?
Maybe I'll try 20021002 also.
