Hey folks --
A lot of work has gone on recently in the i386 ACPI support code to allow
for suspend/resume using ACPI. So far, we've had success with Dell[*],
Sony, and IBM laptops.
Success/error reports would be great. The following information would be
* Make and model of your laptop.
* Full dmesg.
* Using sysutils/pciutil, the output of 'lspci -xxx' before and after
* Did it resume and (mostly) work? Did it resume but the display adapter
* If you have resumed, do any device drivers no longer work?
To run the test, I use the following script:
sysctl -w machdep.sleep_state=3
# ... waking up
[*] My Latitude D600 doesn't reinitialize the display properly unless it
goes to sleep while docked. A workaround is to enable a BIOS password
so the firmware reinitializes the display adapter (to ask for
password) before the wakecode is run.
