    Networking disabled Lucid Powerbook G4

    My laptop when to sleep and when I woke it up it looked like it wouldn't come back on. Kinda looks like it hibernated, even though I set it to sleep.

    Anyway, I reset the laptop and now I get a message where my wireless is, saying "Networking disabled". I restarted it again and nothing different. It's nice to see my network is disabled, with no option to enable it again.

    How do I enable my network?

    Ok, I fixed it by manually putting into suspend and then resuming. Somehow networking is enabled again.

    So the problem now is, why does it not suspend on its own? It's set to suspend, but it does something else.

    I just had the same thing happen about 10 min ago on a Macbook Pro. I accidentally popped the power cable out and the laptop when to a blank screen. After I hit the power button the return from suspend login came back and the network was disabled. Again, the screen randomly went back to a blank screen, 3 lines of something popped up, one of them spouting not enough swap space, and just stayed there like it got hung. I've got 2 gigs of ram and 800MB of swap. I cut the laptop off and restarted. It then tried to recover from a /dev file. I got to the desktop again and still no network. I then restarted from the menu and after the restart, it was fine.
