View Full Version : [ubuntu] iwl3945 Mac in Deep Sleep

May 3rd, 2011, 04:15 AM
So, it's another "Mac in Deep Sleep" problem. Running iwl3945, my laptop is a Sony Vaio VGN-NR160E, running the Intel GM965 card. I haven't run the other cmds yet, but I have a dmesg up. I'll add more stuff on request. I've had this problem consistently over 3 different Ubuntu distros for the past 3 years: Xubuntu, Ubuntu, Mint (and have been too lazy to post, basically the only way to fix this problem is a restart of the system).

I am having the same problem

[ 35.007203] iwl3945: Intel(R) PRO/Wireless 3945ABG/BG Network Connection driver for Linux, 1.2.0

Does anyone have any solutions? It doesn't happen all the time. Sometimes I'll shut the lid of my Sony VAIO laptop and when I open the lid the wireless card is fine but something I'll open it and I get the error you see in the dmesg output above.
