I would like to ask you for help with a weird piece of behaviour of my
arch box (now 3.0, but it was the same with older kernels):
* Shutdown works OK when on A/C, but, when on battery, the computer ends
up with fans on and the On button light on. In this state it is totally
unresponsive -- it looks much as it does when it fails to suspend.
* But, on battery (and A/C too), it reboots perfectly well. So I've
resorted to rebooting when I want to shutdown on battery, and then
plugging it off once it gets to the bios screen.
I'm sure these will be tell-tale symptoms to more enlightened arch
users. For my part, I am totally clueless. I would have suspected an
acpid problem, but I have no shutdown event or action enabled. I don't
see anything interesting in the logs either.
Any piece of advise will be very welcome.
