Description of problem:
Power control works on FC2 with the 2.6 kernel, which it never did on this laptop before. Yay! One effect is that when you close the top, the screen shuts off, which it didn't do before (you could see the light shining on the keys). Unfortunately, when you re-open it the display is squished inward so that it only fills about 30% of the available screen space, and the vertical display is offset so that the top half of the screen is on top, and vice versa.
lspci reports the video card as:
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 440 Go 64M] (rev a3)
The resolution is 1400x1050, and for monitor type I just chose LCD panel 1400x1050 which seems to work perfectly otherwise.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
acpid-1.0.2-6, kernel-2.6.6-1.427, xorg-x11-6.7.0-2
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Close laptop lid
2. Re-open lid
If you switch away from the X console (i.e., ctrl-alt-F1) and then
switch back (ctrl-alt-F7) the display is fixed.
This is probably an interaction between your BIOS and either X or the
kernel. Assigning to the kernel for now.
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
