linux on toshiba laptop
some things that i can't seem to get working properly are:
dpms: display wont power off after x amount of minutes have passed. the display always stays on, either ac powered or battery powered.
under power control in the control panel: it says acpi suspend/standby is not supported. is this maybe a xandros unsupported thing? could i used another distro that would?
because of this i find i cannot close the top and have the laptop go to sleep suspend/standby. it stays on all the time unless i tell it to shut down, which it does.
i cannot "restart" the computer. i must shutdown, then use the power button. no biggie, but i think it all has to do with acpi not working.
should i switch distos? what could i do to get these things working?

Heres another way. I use it on my Satelite Pro. On boot press exit and load the bios. Under Power select "low power", This will give you 15 mins before you moniter shuts down
