Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:

system going into standby

Output of lspci -v
Kernel parameter acpi=off does the job in latest kernel (2.6.6-1.435).
With ACPI enabled you can suspend with this command:
echo 3 >/proc/acpi/sleep
the Fn-F4 key does not work because it requires some application
to listen for the key. there is a thinkpad daemon which can listen
for all thinkpad-related keys. i think you can find it in Dag's
repository for FC1 and FC2.
"echo 3 >/proc/acpi/sleep" doesn't work for me. Blanks the screen,
writes some text and comes back with a whacked X screen.
Oh, i forgot to mention that i got that working with kernel:
Might be worth a try upgrading to that kernel.
Make sure you've got acpid running, and not apm.
