   [Bug 38760] Re: ata timeout with sony vgn-s580 laptop

I don't know why but those SATA timeout messages occur less frequently for me if
I add the ahci module to /etc/modules.

Acer Aspire 9412WLMI
Kubuntu Dapper with latest security updates.
ii  linux-image-2.6.15-26-686              2.6.15-26.46

ii  nvidia-glx                             1.0.8762+

I had to add the boot parameters "video=vga16fb:off video=vesafb:off"
to prevent hard lockups due to bad interaction of nvidia and framebuffer

Hibernation, neither suspend to disk, nor suspend to RAM, works for me at all.
The laptop just freezes with a black screen.
I tried KPowersafe and KLaptop with the same results.
