dell latitude C800 - apm/acpi
I'm having immense troubles setting up either ACPI or APM on my latitude. I've been reading up a lot on the subject, though. Also, the bios doesn't seem to be too buggy. When recompiling it with iasl, I only get a warning (also as a sidenote, I don't know how to make the kernel use my newly compiled DSDT, if that would be necessary - I'm running kernel 2.6.10).
Anyway, so I was just wondering if anyone has the same model of laptop as I do, and have properly set up either APM or ACPI. If so, do you have any tips and tricks?
Edit: Also; perhaps I should mention that I have created the s2d partition with dell's own tool: mks2d. When I run apm -S, nothing happens. Running apm -s puts the computer to suspend mode but locks when resuming. The keyboard and screen work though. If using ACPI, state 4 (echo 4 > /proc/acpi/sleep OR acpitool -S) gives no response (just like apm -S), and state 3 suspends but messes the screen on resume. Everything is done without X running.
