Question RedHat 9 on HP Laptop


I have an HP Pavilion N3410 Laptop, and I just installed RedHat 9...

Is there a way to enable hibernate mode? I can't leave it on all the time (obviously), and the battery sucks ass... So how can I make it hibernate???

No. There isnt. You could have found this fact in a lot of places, and all over these forums. And why cant you leave it on all the time? I leave my toshiba on 24/7

Yes there is, if using KDE under KDE Control just pick power control. you can set your Standby, Suspend, power off times low battery alerts the whole deal just like winbloze. GNOME has it somewhere too but I forget where. I have RH9 on my girlfriends dell laptop and it works just fine

Standby and Suspend are not hibernate. Hibernate is a special feature using the hard drive to store the ram. In which no power is used.
Last time I pulled up K-Laptop or K-Akpi or any of the power control features of kde, I found Suspend and Standby, but only warning messages stating Hibernate was not yet available. So no, there isnt.

*** edit ***
I'm using KDE 3.1.3

Hibernate is part of the ACPI standard, it might be supported for your particular variety of HP, but RedHat doesn't have acpi support in the default 9 install. If you want to try your hand at a 2.4.22 kernel compile, it might work, and there were a ton of acpi updates in 2.4.21, a version ahead of 9's 2.4.20, so that may indeed sort it out. Acpi is still a bit dodgy, and the HPs and Toshibas have a lot of quirks, so this may be just an experiment in compiling if you jump on it.

Luck,

Finegan
