That's what I get on my ex-Compaq Presario 2800 Laptop. The thing starts
closing up everything, I get those messages:
pckdbport: command timeout
pckbd_disable: command error
then it goes to sleep. The power led blinks, as well as one of the leds
of my Netgear PC-Card IEEE 802.11g, which is nice. But when I try to
wake it up using the ON/OFF switch, I hear the fan spinning again, but
that's all. The power LED gets back to a steady light, the LED of the
PC-Card goes on blinking, the screen does not light, and the keyboard
stays inoperative. I have to switch off through the dirty method (long
press on the ON/OFF switch) to reboot it correctly.
PS: I must add that I there at least one bug in the ACPI I am aware of :
the acpibat driver causes a plain and unexpected reboot each time it is
being asked for something regarding battery status. I had to disable it.
