Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 87710
power button doesn't work as expected

The power button of the Toshiba Satellite 3600 is 'soft off'
so you are supposed to press it for 4 seconds to make it
With kernel-2.4.20-8 a simple touch to power button turns
it off. This is due to lack of ACPI.
Single touch doesn't do anything, you get reminded there's no
Single touch power off machine == crash
what kind of crash? Oops?
Sorry, I meant "power off machine equals crash", as in the machine turns power
off stone cold dead.
"push power button" -> "machine powers off"
that sounds just like what I would expect from a power button.....
No, "press the button 4 seconds" -> "machine powers off" is what is expected for
this machine. For power up you also need to press for a couple of seconds.
A single touch is supposed to do nothing or sleep/hibernate/whatever.
Thats BIOS controlled so beyond our ability to fix. When ACPI is ready enough I
suspect the ACPI kernel will solve this for you
