I have a Dell Latitude D505. I installed Squeeze on 12 November 2011 from the weekly DVD. I install updates every day, when available.
My kernel: 2.6.32-5-686 #1 SMP Thu Nov 25 18:43:34 UTC 2010 i686 GNU/Linux
Everything is working fine except the button that is pressed when I close my lid.
Hibernate works, Suspend works, blank screen works. user is member of the group "powerdev"
I really thought thread "closing-laptop-lid-renders-computer-unusable-786822" would bring me a solution. I did everything suggested in that thread, but nothings helps.
When I close my lid my screens turns black with my mouse cursor on it. Connections with ssh are broken. Keyboard is dead, mouse pad too.
It looks like it never start any software it just hangs immediately. I cant find anything in my logs.
Can somebody help me out, it's so anoying when u close your laptop and than everything is gone and you have to put it off. It's not good commercial for my favorite distro Debian also.
