Fedora Core 1:
Dell Inspiron 8000

Okay so if the system goes in to power save mode and the screen shuts down, when it comes back the network doesn't work and the system needs to be rebooted before it can see the network again. Restarting the network and/or Samba services does not fix the problem.....

Any thoughts?

Hey, at least it can hibernate without crashing!

Are we talking pcmcia or onboard ethernet? If its pcmcia, will a hard restart of pcmcia cut it? Got anything from /var/log/messages about power events right after the awake from suspend? Also, I'm assuming acpid is putting this kid to sleep, taken a look at the acpid options?

That's just starting thoughts... hopefully its debuggable, there are a lot of acpi fixes in each kernel as time goes on, so it might just be knockoutable with a switch to 2.6 or a jump to 2.4.24 from the FC default of 2.4.22.

Open a terminal and try "/etc/init.d/network restart" If that works then copy that script to your /sbin (or any location where bash looks for commands, that way you can always just type "network restart") Hope this helps
