    Suspend / resume on Mac Pro 2008 (3,1)

    Hi all, I know this is a tricky one to solve but I'd be interested to know how I can debug this further, or at a minimum, just stop the machine from suspending on it's own as it's impossible to recover from it once it happens without a power cycle. Disablig ACPI completly with a boot hint...

    Solved ACPI Error: "Excess arguments - ASL declared 5, ACPI requires 4"

    Unknown oid 'hw.acpi.thermal'

    I was wondering what would be a possible reason to get the message unknown oid 'hw.acpi.thermal' as response to sysctl hw.acpi.thermal... I'm running FreeBSD 12 on a Xeon rig and ACPI running, so I expect to see also the thermals. But this is not the case. The thermals seem to be missing. What...

    Root password does not login? Cannot create in password in single user mode?

    Hi Forum, When I boot up FreeBSD for the first time (not completely the first time - as I've had earlier versions installed and had the same problem, but didn't report it because I was trying to find a solution.) the root password or the user password just says login incorrect. I am sure the...

    FreeBSD on new Thinkpads (T480)

    Recently I decided to run exclusively FreeBSD 11.2 (RC3) on my new Thinkpad T480. I'm using drm-kmod-next, overall the system runs quite well. But one really annoying problem is that none of the FN-brightness up/down, wireless, etc.. was working. Even using the acpi_ibm driver. It took me a...

    Using laptop without battery

    If I take out the laptop battery, do I confuse the acpi system? I get kernel spam containing: No handler for Region [RCM0] acpi_ec0: evaluation of query method _Q42 failed: AE_NOT_EXIST Is it due to me removing the battery, and if so, how can I tell acpi system not to look for it?

    Solved ACPI, sleep: suspend by default for the power button

    I experimented: $ grep -i acpi /boot/loader.conf hw.acpi.power_button_state="S3" $ Not effective. I guess, because hw.acpi.power_button_state is a sysctl variable but not a loader tunable; acpi. Is there a way to have the button suspend by default? TIA

    Troubleshooting ACPI Sleep 3

    For some reason I'm trying to get FreeBSD installed on a notebook (weird, I know) and I'm having trouble getting sleep mode working right. If you run acpiconf -s 3 (or even quit X with Ctrl-Alt-Backspace) while X is running, the screen does this, and if you run it from the command line...

    Install of 10.2-RELEASE gives permanent CPU load

    In May I started with 10.0-RELEASE on an ASrock E3C224D4I-14S. The system had low power consumption and powerd did a good job lowering the CPU frequency. However starting from 10.1 (and now 10.2-RELEASE) I keep getting high CPU consumption due to a process called {acpi task}. BIOS upgrades or...

    Hello, I'm trying to lock my notebook whenever the screen lid is closed. I tried to combine /usr/bin/lock -vpn with ACPI control, by adding the lock command to /etc/rc.resume. ACPI sleep/resume is working fine, but when the notebook is resumed, lock is not executed, and I'm back at the shell...
