Problems and Solutions

Suspend to RAM

Framebuffer causes problems with wakeup from suspend. Compile the kernel without Framebuffer console support.

Screen powering off unexpectedly

This problem was observed while running mplayer or starting kdm. A quick fix is to reactivate the monitor using Fn+F7. For a more permanent fix, try compiling battery driver into the kernel (not as a module).

Mplayer Crashes

Disable 3dnow Use-Flag (Possibly the processor does not support 3dnow).
