Default Computer won't resume from S3

-----BEGIN PGP SIGNED MESSAGE-----
Hash: SHA1


Hi All

First post - pretty new to Debian, less so to linux in general.

I have a PC here (mainboard IBM 819966U) running Etch that seems to
hang after sitting idle for a long period of time.
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?


ACPI seems like a real can of worms right now - is there a good way
to track down what the issue is? and if I find it will I be able to
fix anything?


Suggestions appreciated,

Brian

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
acpi=off noapic
to the kernel line in grub.

I've got an 8311CCU and fiddled with the bios for a few weeks to no avail.
The above fixed it.

HTH,

Scott

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'
