Default Power Management

Is power management going in anytime? I have a Dell Inspiron 8500, that works excellent exept that I cannot use suspend (swsusp) without killing X first.

Default NVidia and swsusp/acpi on 2.4.23

Hi Robin,

In the meanwhile I upgradded to 2.4.23 plus the latest acpi-20031203 patch plus swsusp-2.0rc3. The software suspend stuff has really made a great step forward and Nvidia's dirver 1.0-4496 already has some basis power management support for APM.

Unfortunately, did not succed in getting my Dell Precision M50 to suspend correctly under X. Since I'm a paying customer and I got the impression, that getting NVidia's driver to run with the latest kernel features we should pledge for ACPI resp. swsusp support in the next NVidia driver.
