The toshiba needs ACPI support for this which we don't currently include. We are
reviewing ACPI support as a candidate for future releases depending on its
stability now.

I would like to point out that Laptops are one of the segments in the computer
hardware market that is still growing !

And that small business owners tend to buy laptops, not desktops.

This fix is critical to moving Linux onto the desktop.

Can you please try 2.4.22-rc4 (or 2.4.6-test4) with ACPI enabled? If it does 
not work, please provide acpidmp info so that we can find a similar machine or 
understand what AML is doing?

FC2-test1 includes the ACPI patch above that fixed the problem.

Closing.  Please re-open if you still see issues.
