    Re: Acer Timeline 3810T

    So I am now curious to know about how the suspend problem was finally fixed, like an ending of Scooby Doo, I would like a little explanation.

    I see that the i8042 chip is the keyboard controller.

    Thanks Bruderjakob for fixing this, it really makes this laptop a joy to use now.

    I have found out another strange behaviour:

    - Suspend the computer
    - Touch the keyboard (press any key) OR touch the (very) sensitive wireless 'button'

    As a results, the machine will power up without further warning (and resume properly). This behaviour appears to be deactivated when the lid is closed. Maybe this is a hint to the 8042 chip problem?!

    Sorry, don't know how the fix works. I only did a quick google on "i8042.reset=1" to make sure it wasn't something dangerous.

    That is OK Miegiel, I really appreciate that you posted the instructions needed to add to grub, so we didn't have to trawl through the bug report.

    Hey guys. Just curious. I am still running the origional BIOS and have not really seen the need to upgrade until the suspend problem was fixed. Well it wasn't a bios issue after all.

    I am considering updating to 1.20. Are there any reasons to update? Were any issues fixed that I am not considering? Should I do it? I am on 1.10 now.

    Thanks

    1 reason not to flash too 1.20: You can't boot from a SD card in 1.20, it won't show up in the F12 BIOS boot devices menu. Booting from a SD card with a external USB SD card reader does work though.

    1 reason to flash too 1.20: Supports (hardware accelerated?) virtualization according to a post a bit back in this thread.

    I was on 1.10 too. I'm not sure if I regret it or not

    i just went from 1.10 to 1.24 and i saw a drop of 12 watts to around 9 watts power consumption. This has taken my battery life from 4.5 hours to nearly 7 hours.

    I think that this is due to the presence of lower frequency states (as there is now a 800 mhz state). I'm very glad i updated.

    Never noticed the 800MHz, the 1.20 BIOS does that too.
