Notes

- A few notes from my experience:

  • - The hardware buttons for wifi, sound, etc are really slick on this computer. Touch sensitive - and better is that they work on 7.10! - Flash: Flash install seems to be messed up and reinstalling doesn't change it. Finally got it working by installing from Flash site.

    - 3Hibernate: Since one significant update to the distro I believe this now works most of the time. I have hibernated several times and come back to it successfully. The only thing to note is that the login screen comes back *so* dim that I often am not able to see it. I have to enter my password and then crank up brightness with keyboard. Occasionally it doesn't work at all, and when this happens, I have to unplug and take out the battery to get it to shut off (simply holding the power button doesn't work).

    - 4 Card reader: No response whatsoever when using an SD card. Note that I was using a microSD in SD adapter, though that shouldn't make a difference. - I had a terrible time with this laptop using 7.04 and wasted a lot of hours trying to get it working. I installed 7.10 and it was waaaay better. 7.04 wouldn't even boot. I could only get to command line after some tweaks recommended in the forums.

- notes from gorthx:

  • - I did all of my testing of Hardy off the 8.04 LTS live CD. Testing of Ibex was done on an actual install.

    - 1 External monitor is an HP1706. Laptop screen resolution was correct unless the external monitor was connected; then the laptop picked up the proper resolution for the external monitor (which cut off the bottom of the laptop display). fn+f4 (the usual key to switch between laptop screen & external monitor) did not work - display was always shown on both screens if the external monitor was connected.

    - 2 Hibernate functioned properly (several times) as long as I did not close the lid. Closing the lid disabled usb mouse, touchpad, keyboard mouse & required a hard reboot (unplug & remove battery) to recover. Have yet to try disabling the sensor as outlined below. update I found the settings to change with (without having to disable the sensor): System -> Preferences -> Screen Saver -> Power Management: When laptop lid is closed: Do nothing. Smile :)

    - 5 To find the HP bluetooth PCMCIA mouse, make sure that the mouse is fully charged (green light when it's in the slot); pop out the kickstand; press the connect button (with a paperclip or some such.) You should then be able to see the mouse from the "Setup new device" option from the bluetooth gui menu.

- Other Notes

  • - Close Lid: Closing the lid crashes the laptop. Here is my workaround, you can disconnect the sensor lid so when you close it nothing happen.
    • To disconnect it, remove the cover where you have the power switch, touchpad on/off switch, volume... no need to unscrew anything. You will find the sensor connector next to the power switch, it's the white connector with 2 wires. When disconnect, you can then close the lid for as long as you want without crashing ubuntu or the touchpad turned off.
    - Wireless: Working perfectly on Netgear DG834GT with auto-connect. Using WPA-PSK and MAC Filtering but had to Broadcast my SSID and install Wicd not Network Manager. -SD Card Reader: No luck with this. Any idea?
