What kind of video card do you have and are you using the latest driver for your video card? If I understand what you are saying correctly updating your driver as well as updating your xorg.conf file may solve this problem. Do you know how to do that?
Ok I have no idea how to do those things.
as far as my video card. IF the spec sheet is to be believed then I am using an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 900. (by the way open gl does not seem to play nice with this card as it is set up right not using open GL for desktop effects right now (using cairo doc))
I should explain for those that did not read my last thread. this laptop was a friends throw away that I replaced the HD for.
It has 2g ram 80g harddrive 1.5ghz cpu
It's going to end up being that travel computer that I don't care if it gets stolen since it was free. (going to costa rica)
I'm not a laptop user and the first that comes to mind is to check whether you have (enough) swap space.
When you hibernate/sleep the computer the system has to write/save all that is in your RAM to HDD so the next time it "wakes up" you would be presented with the exactly the same state as it was at hibernation moment.
If I remember correctly you didn't create a separate swap partition. old-polack says (again IIRC) that you need a separate swap partition for hibernation/sleep. And it has to be of size twice than your RAM.
I am not sure but may be here you have the problem.
Hey UncleV again thanks for all your help in that last thread once i get this sorted Ill be going back to that.
I believe pclinuxos sets up 3g swap automatically and I have 2g of ram. I guess I could try to resize it using a live cd and see if that helps it, but ill try that after i try updating xorg and the drivers once i get instructions on that.
