Description Yaron Minsky 2001-04-18 14:46:12 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2-2 i686; en-US; 0.8.1)

My laptop (Gateway Solo 2500) hangs being reawakened when it is plugged in
to the power.  This did not occur with RH7.0.  When the freezup happens,
the mini-LCD panel shows that disk access is occuring, though I don't hear it.
Interestingly, if the laptop is not plugged in to the power, everything
works fine

Another thing worth noting is that the behavior of the power management is
quite different in general since I upgraded to 7.1.  In particular, I can
now put the laptop to sleep while in XWindows with no ill effects.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Put laptop to sleep
2. Plug it in
3. Hit the resume button

Can you boot with the lilo-commandline option "ide=nodma" and see if that fixes

This sounds like a bios issue; maybe the IDE state isn't preserved in some

I tried using the ide=nodma option (from the text-mode boot).  No improvement. 
Note that this problem started immediatly after I upgraded from 7.0 to 7.1, so
if it is a BIOS problem, it's one that was uncovered by the upgrade.  Also, I'm
running the latest BIOS for the machine (10.12), although I suppose that doesn't
mean the BIOS aren't buggy.

Do you happen to have a eepro100 networkcard ?
