This is a GREAT article. While not everything worked for me exactly as told, it is the best resource I have found for the T60 and F7

Thanks TOM!

When I try to come out of a suspend, I get a yellow "INU" on the screen, and the moon led stays lit. Any ideas? I don't see this behavior anywhere that I can find.

Try to add "acpi_sleep=s3_bios,s3_mode" to your kernel parameters in your bootloader, reboot and try to suspend. It should work now. --Zhenech 10:14, 4 July 2007 (UTC)
With an uptodate Fedora you can use pm-suspend, which takes care of these options, see: Till 16:18, 16 August 2007 (UTC)

Top article. If you don't mind (!) I'll make my notes as I go here and then can add them in if appropriate.

ethernet didn't work out the box for some reason. but kernel module was installed, so just popping alias eth0 e1000 into the modprobe.conf seems to have solved that. bluetooth next works out of the box, needed Fn F5 to kick it into action. love to know if anyone has sorted hibernation -- it's well important!

Your article was very helpful Tom, however, in your example, you used an encrypted connection without showing us how you specified the encryption key. I'm having all kinds of trouble trying to make mine work, if you have that part figured out, I'd be very grateful. Thanks, Rob
