View Full Version : eee 1000h sleep disables wireless in bios

September 2nd, 2009, 06:00 AM
I put a fresh copy of 9.04 netbook remix on my eee 1000h and it worked fine. After I ran updates, the wireless stopped working. I discovered that every time my computer would go to sleep, it would disable wireless in the BIOS. The only way to fix it that I know of is to reset it, enter the bios and re-enable it. There was a similar thread http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1218753&highlight=1000h+wireless&page=2 but that didn't really solve the problem or come to any conclusion on how to fix it. I don't see why updating the wireless drivers would keep it from messing up my BIOS. any suggestions? thanks

here are some outputs. thanks again

Weird. Going to sleep makes my backlight stop working until I log out and back in again. No issues with wireless, though.

One other odd behavior on my Eee PC 1000HEB is associated with hooking up an external monitor. It appears that when I do this, the functionality of Fn + F8 changes from switching the screen to another "increase brightness" action. Some kind of ACPI bugs maybe?
