how to enable acpi in suse 9 using Klaptop dialog box


Hi I am wondering if someone can give me the commands I need to enter in the "configure KLaptop" dialogue box, under the "setup ACPI" button in SuSE 9.

Once you open up Klaptop and click on the setup acpi button, a new dialog box pops up asking you to type in commands for the following:

standby:...................

suspend:...................

hibernate:..................


Thanks!!!

ACPI isnt fully supported yet under SuSE 9.0, and I dont know what type off command they want you to put in those fields (havent found any info on it).

I had this problem myself on my Toshiba Laptop, I just went back to using APM for my suspending, APM works flawlessly under SuSE, atleast on my Toshiba.

Try using APM by booting with ACPI=OFF, it will automaticly choose APM instead, when booted, right click on your Kdesktop taskbar icon -> suspend.

at least that is how I suspend under SuSE, anyone else have a better alternative atm?
