Question how to awake my laptop ?


My laptop is set to 'put computer to sleep when inactive for 11 minuts' in Power Management (fedora 9).

Now I don't know how to awake it when it is in sleep-mode.

Hi!

If your power button doesn't help try this:

echo -n "mem" > /sys/power/state

or this:

Edit /boot/grub/menu.lst'
Add the two lines:

ro acpi_sleep=s3_bios
and
ro acpi_sleep=s3_bios splash=silent in your default kernel line.

When I press power button, or tick the mouse-pad/buttons or press any key at keybord only the muiltimedia keys get on but system remains in sleep-mode. Press and hold power button boots the computer from startup. Is this normal?
