I just replied to another message. I think when I installed acpitool and
tried to suspend (a couple days ago) that screwed something up. Do you
think that upgrading to FC5 would solve the problem? I was hoping to
wait for a larger hard drive before upgrading to FC5 but I don't know if
I can wait another week until the drive shows up.
