3.5.4 Rc Suspicious Suspend
« on: January 27, 2006, 04:12:12 am »
Hi All!

I have been trying the latest 3.5.4RC (thx to Hrw) and noticed strange thing. I suspend my SL-5000 in the evening and next morning battery is empty. Does anyone noticed something like that on 5000 or 5500 model?

I've seen this when the 2.6.x kernels were being developed. In my case it was that the CF card was not being shutdown.

Do you have a CF card in the machine? Might be worth taking it out and seeing what happens.

What kernel version is this? There was another glitch during the dev of 2.6.x to do with battery level reporting (depending on whether external power was plugged in when you rebooted of all things  ). This meant that the kernel thought the battery was flat, when it actually wasn't.

It is 2.4 as was pointed above.

Yes. It is a good poit and I am going to experimet with it.

Problem is not in kernel. Battery is empty and that is why zaurus does not turn up.
