    The problem: It will suspend fine... go into memory, nothing but the awake light blinking.... this is good. But hit enter to wake it up... it wakes up, but then immediately shuts down. I listed below what I thought might be important config settings for you to see. Ideas/suggestions? thanks!

    Distro: PCLinuxOS
    Kernel Version: 2.6.12
    PC: HP DV5030us Laptop

    lilo setting (from PCC)
    Enable ACPI - checked
    No Force APIC - checked
    Force No Local APIC - unchecked

    append: noapic nomce acpi=on psmouse.proto=imps splash=silent resume=/dev/hda7
    Note: hda7 is my swap drive

    /etc/lilo.conf
    default="PCLinuxOS"
    boot=/dev/hda
    map=/boot/map
    keytable=/boot/livecd.klt
    menu-scheme=wb:bw:wb:bw
    prompt
    nowarn
    timeout=100
    message=/boot/message
    image=/boot/vmlinuz-2.6.12-oci6.mdk-i586-up-1GB
    label="PCLinuxOS"
    root=/dev/hda6
    initrd=/boot/initrd-2.6.12-oci6.mdk-i586-up-1GB.img
    append="noapic nomce acpi=on psmouse.proto=imps splash=silent resume=/dev/hda7"
    vga=788
    read-only
    other=/dev/hda2
    label="Winblows"

    KDE CC - power control - laptop battery settings:

    Power control tab: Powered - Suspend - 1 minute (for testing purposes)
    ACPI config tab: all checked


    Also, hibernate is slow, but works. Minor glitch, my USB ports dont wake up...any clue on any of these issues?

    Thanks!

    Welcome to Linux, where ACPI and power management is still subpar, since it is not really required for anything but desktops and or laptops.

    It will be fixed in due time, just give it time.
