PR 42583: ACPI errors, HP DV6-1334US [Was: The imperfect beauty of NetBSD]

,--- I/Alex (Tue, 05 Jan 2010 12:44:29 -0500) ----*
| Thank you: over the next few days, I am planning to attempt a BIOS
| upgrade and enter a PR with an ACPI dump

Did both -- the BIOS upgrade did not help.

There is more information than listed in the PR, if anybody is
interested (and, of course, I can do more experimenting on demand).

| Another thing about ACPI in NetBSD that bothers me: "halt -p" not
| always powers off a computer.
| I *think* I didn't forget the `-p' option to `halt' last night --
| still, the machine was halted without switching off.

Tried this again, on the laptop, submitting `halt -p' in an `xterm'
window displayed elsewhere -- the laptop doesn't power off, with the
old or new BIOS.
