Well I tried your sudo suggestion, and it was the same as it was without it. I also did a few experiments. Echoing 1 to /proc/acpi/sleep just made the computer stop responding to input. I tested it in runlevel 3, and got the same result as before. However, the computer still reacts to the power button, which shuts down the computer. I edited the /etc/acpi/acpi_event_handler.sh, replacing "/sbin/init 0" with "/bin/echo 0 > /proc/acpi/sleep". Now I can get the computer out of the input freeze. Or maybe it was an output freeze? Anyways, right now what echo 1 > /proc/ac... does isn't very useful. How can I get it to work properly?
