Fedora install problem - laptop goes into standby mode


I'm trying to install fedora, but my laptop is frequently going into standby mode, I tried slackware 8.1 instead, and that didnt have the same problem, but couldnt go into X windows because it couldn't find the monitor, but it shows the monitor fine when im in the basic shell, any ideas/suggestions welcome.

So are you trying to solve the Fedora problem or the Slack problem?

If Fedora, make sure power mgmnt isn't loaded, usually apmd. Check by running:
chkconfig --list | grep apmd

Make sure it is off in all run levels.

Also check your laptop BIOS setting for power savings. I'm afraid I'm no help with SlackWare...
