Re: Restart bug?

Posts: n/a
Dear Tony,

Yes, but that's not what I want -- I want the machine to reboot properly.
It isn't suspended or asleep or hibernating, it's _stuck_ -- unresponsive
to everything but the reset and power buttons.

A friend has suggested that the ACPI 2.0 table has to be enabled in BIOS,
and I'm trying that next.
