Description Carlos Morgado 2003-04-01 17:14:43 UTC
The power button of the Toshiba Satellite 3600 is 'soft off' so you are supposed to press it for 4 seconds to make it poweroff. With kernel-2.4.20-8 a simple touch to power button turns it off. This is due to lack of ACPI. Expected: Single touch doesn't do anything, you get reminded there's no hybernate function Actual result: Single touch power off machine == crash
Comment 1 Matt Wilson 2003-04-01 17:23:05 UTC
what kind of crash? Oops?
Comment 2 Carlos Morgado 2003-04-01 17:42:11 UTC
Sorry, I meant "power off machine equals crash", as in the machine turns power off stone cold dead.
Comment 3 Arjan van de Ven 2003-04-11 13:40:50 UTC
"push power button" -> "machine powers off" that sounds just like what I would expect from a power button.....
Comment 4 Carlos Morgado 2003-05-16 13:30:45 UTC
No, "press the button 4 seconds" -> "machine powers off" is what is expected for this machine. For power up you also need to press for a couple of seconds. A single touch is supposed to do nothing or sleep/hibernate/whatever.

Thats BIOS controlled so beyond our ability to fix. When ACPI is ready enough I suspect the ACPI kernel will solve this for you
