My Thinkpad T21 Died when going to standby


I have Debian (Sarge) with kernel 2.6.8.1 on my IBM Thinkpad T21.

I compiled in support for ACPI and all that stuff.
Now when I tested "standby" I cant get it started again!!!.. In Windows and even in other linux versions i have used it is only to press FN and e.g. brigter (the sun) or somethin.. but now i have turned it off totaly. Only the battery is lightended. And it doesnt respond on the power switch anymore...

Is there some way to reset the bios state or somethin?

Please help me..

Standby messes up

Suspend Works perfect

Hibernate messes up..

I dont know if it is so for others, but it is for me.
