Public bug reported:

We are running version Dapper Flight 5 and have updated several times so
it is probably more like Flight 6 in package content.

Sleep and hibernate both work without any hacking.   Congratulations!
The first distro ever to get the Acer Aspire 3000 correct.

One minor problem is that the Broadcom modem configured under
ndiswrapper does not wake up 'till you hit the Fn plus Sleep (Z) button.

The machine needs to sleep and then when you touch the spacebar the
machine wakes and so does the WIFI.

Another bug is that the modules file does not contain "ndiswrapper" as a
module to load at boot.   Without this dhcp will not work and you would
have to type modprobe ndiswrapper after each boot.

Two of us have this exact laptop and the problems are identical.

Ian.
