I am trying to get this laptop to suspend to ram, and then it will be ideal. I have searched the forums and googled and tried numerous things which don't work.
ACPI works except for suspend. I read on one of the pages that the 2.4 kermel doesn't support S3 state. I tried anyway and, no it doesn't. I did "modprobe toshiba_acpi" and "modprobe ac" etc.
OK, so I'll try APM, I think, which is reported to work on a site putting Debian on this very machine. So I add "noacpi" to grub. ACPI seems to load. I try "acpi=off" and the machine hangs on boot (just after reporting the CPU speed).
I know the machine can do it; if I hit the power button while in grub, it suspends. Is there a way to turn it over to bios?
I would like a suggestion on what to try next, if anyone can think of enything!
