ACPI 3.01, testing suspend/resume

August 17, 2007 by Eugene Gorbunoff

New generation of ACPI sub-system is available.
eComStation supports suspend/resume on multi-core notebooks and barebones now.
FAQs are published at ACPI tools homepage --

How to setup sleep/resume? (APM.doc)
* Use Panorama VESA video driver
* Goto BIOS Setup, Enable "Init video after S3". If no such option then ACPI.PSD should try to perform this operation. Add ACPI.PSD /VBE to init video BIOS after resume. (there are no guarantees that this will work)
* Edit acpid.cfg, suspend should be: suspend=S3
* How to suspend? Open Power object - > Suspend
* How to resume after sleep? Press Power button.

How to achieve success in testing?
* update danis506.add to 1.8.1 (How to update Danis -- Software updates --
* disable all device drivers before testing suspend/resume (USB, audio, network)
* You can see the list of Sleep states supported by your computer when starting ACPI daemon (S1 - computer is stopped; S2 - computer is stopped, part of devices are powered off; S3 - all devices are powered off, except memory; S4 - all devices are powered off; S5 - power off)
