I have a Gateway Solo 2150, and I had a toshiba protoge, as well, both
laptops wouldn't enter sleep mode correctly as long as any 3com card was
inside the machine. the same was true for an old CTX laptop that a buddy of
The development kernels explicitly hinted off that it was a problem with a
device not going into sleep. the 3com nic drivers _are_ apm aware as they
react to apm calls.
In windows9x, windows explicity tells you a device or resource is not

card, because if i eject it, geuss what, it works...
Don't ask me why. I don't know. I don't really even have time to find out. I
just thought I'd pass it along. :) This _can't_ be a thinkpad only problem.
