It didn't have this problem previously when using Mandrake 10.1
although I have changed some of the hardware since then.
It _seems like_ the hard drives are the issue - they don't spin
back up and any attempt at logging in at the console times out.
It looks like the problem goes away if I change the suspend type to
S1 instead of S3 in the BIOS, although I thought Linux overrode the
BIOS when using ACPI?
OK - so much for that idea - this morning as soon as I touched the
keyboard it started a long single continuous tone and never stopped.
Won't shutdown either. The hunt continues....
might try adding
to the kernel line in grub.
I've got an 8311CCU and fiddled with the bios for a few weeks to no
The above fixed it.
Just quick follow up note. There was a case fan that wasn't spinning
(probably because it never had to) and another case fan that was only
partially spinning. I'm not sure if the issue is the BIOS not
running the fans properly or the power supply being insufficient to
spin all the fans (the fans themselves seem fine) but removing the
extra case fans has made the continuous error tone go away, and the
temperature inside the case is still fine. I'm calling it 'fixed'
