Using ACPI with Thinkpads
This page provides tips and tricks for making ACPI behave properly.
Thinkpad 600E 2645-4AU
ACPI works but there are problems with suspend/hibernate:
- The package uswsusp doesn't have 600E white listed as of this writing (Aug 2007) so for suspend to ram you need to use "s2ram -f -p -m". On resume the video mode will be messed up switching back and forth to X fixes it. Don't suspend to ram without running X because the console gets messed up. Please, update this information if you find workarounds. Newer versions of uswsusp will white list 600E.
- Soundcard module needs reloading.
- 3com Etherlink III pcmcia card needs reloading.
Warning: There's a strange problem with ACPI - the system will lock hard when the fan is first started. Once the fan is running after the reboot the problem appears no longer.
