Bug Description

On my HP NW8240, the sleep button is not detected (no ACPI button events and no
"keyboard" events).

This means "sleep" does not work out of the box.

If you run xev and press the sleep button while focusing it, do you get any
output? Unless the 8240 is wildly different to the rest of the machines in the
range, this /ought/ to work.

xev wasn't available at the time, but yes, dit does something:

That's the events from the mouse moving in and out, by the looks of it. Does
focusing the window, waiting for messages to stop being generated and then
pressing the sleep key generate anything?

Yes. That stuff (2 FocusOut, 1 FocusIn and a KeymapNotify). The mouse generates

Ok. Can you confirm that system/preferences/keyboard shortcuts claims that sleep
is 0xdf, and that /etc/default/acpi-support has the second line uncommented?

Martijn vdS (martijn) wrote :

keyboard shortcut "sleep" = 0xdf: yes
/etc/default/acpi-support ACPI_SLEEP is commented (but that might be because
this is an old daily, will test with colony-4 as soon as I finish downloading it.

Matthew Garrett (mjg59) wrote :

Right. Can you uncomment it and then try again?

Ping?

Martijn vdS (martijn) wrote :

Pressing the button does nothing, except generate the code, it seems.

Matthew Garrett (mjg59) wrote :

You're running Gnome, right? If you go into keyboard shortcuts, can you bind the
sleep key to the sleep function? Is ACPI_SLEEP=true uncommented?

Martijn vdS (martijn) wrote :

Then it gets set to 0xdf, but the computer still does nothing (no log message,
etc.) when I press the key.

Similar to bug #20204...

Can you please confirm that ACPI_SLEEP is uncommented?

Matt: I doubt it. The HP hardware I have here behaves in much the same way,
except that it works...

Martijn vdS (martijn) wrote :

root@ubuntu:/etc/default# head acpi-support

# Uncomment the next line to enable ACPI suspend to RAM
ACPI_SLEEP=true

# Comment the next line to disable suspend to disk
ACPI_HIBERNATE=true

Martijn vdS (martijn) wrote :

OK, so I just needed a reboot(?!)...

It works now, but waking up doesn't go very well, but that seems to be a fglrx
issue.

Matthew Garrett (mjg59) wrote :

Ok. Could you try waking up without fglrx (or if the system doesn't work without
fglrx, make sure that there's a bug filed on that)

Matthew Garrett (mjg59) wrote :

Did this work?

Martijn vdS (martijn) wrote :

The system doesn't work nicely without fglrx (see #14043)

Matthew Garrett (mjg59) wrote :

Does it resume to the same sort of level of brokenness, though?

Still does not work for Kubuntu Breezy and Dapper Flight 2. Should I open new bug?
Note: hibernate only works with ATI drivers (tested only of Breezy).

That's because this machine is a *Compaq* and not an HP!

Rebranded and with the dmi-sig changed from "Compaq ..." to "HP Compaq ...".

Ooh, magical. I've added the entries provided by Luka to a new compaq.hk. Four of the keycodes match other [pre-HP-merger] Compaqs. One key code ("Presentation") matches other HP definitions.

# From: "HP Compaq nw8240 (PG818ET#ABU)"
setkeycodes e05f $KEY_SLEEP # Fn+F3 Sleep (matches compaq.hk)
setkeycodes e059 $KEY_F24 # Fn+F8 Battery
setkeycodes e075 $KEY_PROG2 # Info Info key (matches hp.hk)
setkeycodes e01f $KEY_F23 # Presentation (Full screen?)
setkeycodes e020 $KEY_MUTE # Mute toggle Volume Mute (matches compaq.hk)
setkeycodes e02e $KEY_VOLUMEDOWN # LowVolume Volume Down (matches compaq.hk)
setkeycodes e030 $KEY_VOLUMEUP # HighVolume Volume Up (matches compaq.hk)

Luka Renko (lure) wrote :

Paul: was fix for this really released? It still does not work on my system, and I do not find compaq.hk (only hp.hk) - is it possible that this file is not packaged in latest hotkey-setup (0.1-12 on my system)?

Paul Sladen (sladen) wrote :

It's not even in 0.14 which is in Debian. the compaq.hk is on my hard-drive and there's a copy attached to another bug.

Matthew's right, this is an HP, not old-Compaq; many of the keycodes are not in there as they match the ones used by Microsoft (and therefore the default codes in the kernel).

If you copy and paste the contents of the comment two above onto the end of:

  /usr/share/hotkey-setup/hp.hk

does that make things better for you?
