    Hi Darcy,

    That was pretty much my findings too. I did have to disable the
    ability for the machine to sleep/hibernate though as it wouldn't come
    back out of the sleep state.

    Apart from that though. It was perfect (inc TV Tuner)

    Note: This was with Edgy 6.10 and may have changed. I just thought I'd
    point it out to you in case you get the same issue.

    On my pieces of HW sleep/hibernate refuses to work on each one using a
    Feisty, a Gutsy and a Debian Lenny. A real pain for the laptop but being
    worked on I gather.

    Forgot to add that my Lexmark z35 printer (CUPS) and HP ScanJet 2300c
    flat bed scanner (hpoj, Xsane) work just fine too. Both are old, and "no
    longer supported," but the drivers I've found work very well.

    ACPI related IIRC. Id also heard that there was a "re-write" on the
    horizon for the kernel. However, a quic google doesn't produce over
    much.

    There was an interesting discussion about all this recently in COLA.
    Needless to say it "just works" for everyone in there :-;

    I don't do COLA. From what I've seen of what spills into here, I'm
    pretty glad I don't.

    Anyway. The article (IIRC was from Linux User and Developer) suggested
    that HP was putting a great deal of effort into sorting out ACPI and
    talking of putting code to the linux kernel. They were also tryin g to
    enlist other effected manufacturers.

    It makes sense in this new age of power conservation.

    There was a lovely Private Eye cartoon the other week with God looking
    down on the planet with jesus at his side. The planet looked like a ball
    of toxic gas with explosions and what not going on. Jesus says to god
    "Did you try turning it off and back on again".

    Just hooked-up my Canon Digital IXUS 50 digtal camera. Ubu noticed, as
    soon as I powered-up the camera, and immediately asked if I wanted to
    download its photos. I did. It worked. It doesn't get any better than
    that...
