Description of problem:
When I close the lid on my IBM T30 laptop the machine continues to run
at full power. I determined this in two different ways: 1) the
standby "moon" led does not light with the lid closed, and 2) the
battery stat applet shows "Battery: 99% (High)" when I connect an
external monitor to the closed laptop. With Fedora Core 1 the laptop
would enter standby mode when the lid was closed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Start FC2 test3 on an IBM T30 laptop
2.Close the laptop lid
Actual Results: The machine continues to run at full power.
Expected Results: The machine should have powered down and entered
What happens if you boot with 'acpi=off'?
If I boot with "acpi=off" then apmd is started instead of acpid and
the machine enters standby mode when the lid is closed. Will this
support be migrated to acpid?
