    Nice monologue . Is someone purposely deleting all replies?

    Re: boot crash, the fix acpi=off turns off battery stats and suspend features.

    I just want to say I was experiencing something similar to this with my Acer AspireOne D250.

    I left it idle (plugged in) all night and when I checked it in the morning it was off. I have it set to never suspend/hibernate while plugged in.

    I it on and it imediately turned back off. The only way I could get it to come back on was to remove the battery, boot without battery, shutdown, put battery back in, and boot with both battery and charger connected. Also, I have found that regardless of my power settings the computer still loses netaccess/suspends or whatever after 5+ minutes of idle on ac power.

    What could have caused this?

    try with acpi=off in your grub, as explained in the earlier posts. Or read your kernel.log carefully for any error messages, around the time when your computer acted weirdly.

    Re: boot crash, the fix acpi=off turns off battery stats and suspend features.

    Okay, so here's the latest on my acpi woes - after weeks of testing, i have some lead into the issues, although i need help from you all.

    I boot with
    Code:
    acpi_osi=Linux
    in /boot/grub/menu.lst.

    Restarting the laptop, or resuming from hibernation or suspend all work fine, as long as it has not been like almost half-a-day since the laptop was on and working. If it has been like a long time since i used my computer, at the splash screen loading, the fan shows a sudden outburst of activity and then the computer powers off suddenly, if i'm resuming from a hibernation and if i'm just resuming from suspend to memory, the computer just goes off, after i hear a sudden fan outburst. This happens a second time as well, and only at the third power on does the splash screen goes through (no fan outburst this time) and i can log in.
    The same is the issue when I'm using a LiveUSB booting (into karmic).

    If however, at the start I press ESC at the grub menu option, and select MemTest86, and run it till at least like half-way through the second test, there is no fan issue at the splash screen once I have canceled the memtest at the 2nd test (by pressing ESC), regardless of when did i last turn my laptop on.

    I'm really clueless what exactly is running a memtest86 for a few seconds doing to my laptop which is overcoming the problems i'm facing while doing a "cold" powering on, after like 12 hours.

    I have checked the core temperatures using lmsensors, and they go maximum upto around 46 deg C if i've been using my laptop for quite some time, and right after powering on my laptop after a long time shutdown or suspend, (when i am able to boot in after the inevitable power off), the temperatures are around 10-16 deg C.

    Can anyone help me diagnose my problem? I will be happy to paste all the necessary outputs.

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, i actually noticed that whenever I ran memtest86 at the start for a few seconds (till halfway through the second test), my core-temperatures (using lmsensors) were shooting up and reaching the critical value of 85deg C once i had logged in, and pretty soon. Does that mean that running memtest86 turned off the fans, and as with acpi=off, it sort of gave me a "temporary" relief and allowed me to boot in (although it was obviously at the cost of critical core-temperature values in no time)?

    So it definitely points to an issue with the fan.
    I have two questions:
    1)why is running memtest86 for a few seconds before booting switching off my fan?
    2)why is switching off my fan allowing me to boot in at the first attempt?
    3)why does a power on after a long time cause shut-off at the splash screen a couple of times? (and why do i hear all the sudden outburst of fan, which i don't hear when the boot goes through succesfully to the login screen?) - however, A POINT TO BE NOTED : after my core-temperatures had shot up to 82deg C thanks to memtest86, i RESTARTed my laptop, and now, again from the BIOS screen onwards, and even through the splash screen loading, i heard a loud fan (quite possibly cooling off the system) and no doubt, at start-up, lmsensors showed a 46deg C. (Normally, on powering on, there is only a very little fan burst, and obviously whenever the splash screen "drama" unfolds, there is that OUTBURST of fan at the splash loading.)
    Incidently my /proc/acpi/fan folder is empty. However, all this had never been an issue for like the last one and a half-years.

    Re: boot crash, the fix acpi=off turns off battery stats and suspend features.

    For those who have the same problem (i.e. no battery meter or shutdown ability when acpi=off) here's a solution.

    Edit your Grub 2 linux boot script from terminal:
    sudo gedit /etc/grub.d/10_linux
    Find the line that reads:
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="$GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT"
    and make it
    Code:
    GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="$GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT pci=noacpi"
    Save changes and exit.
    Then update your grub.cfg file by typing:
    sudo update-grub2
    then
    sudo reboot
    If setting "pci=noacpi" didn't work, try the other ACPI boot options specified at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingACPI.
