SubjectRe: [Acpi] Re: ACPI "hlt" mode and SMP systems?
Hi!

I have few comments...

> +System sleep states are defined as follows:
> +
> +S0 - On
> + - System is running.
> +
> +S1 - "Power On Suspend"
> + - Processor power, and hence execution context, is preserved.
> + - Devices may have been put into a low power state.
> +
> +S2 - "Pseudo-Suspend To Ram"
> + - Processor power is removed.
> + - Devices may be placed into low power state.
> + - Memory is placed into self-refresh and retains context.
> + - Execution starts again from processor's reset vector
> + - Cache and MTRR configuration is lost during this state; the
> + firmware is responsible for restoring it to some known state.

> +S3 - "Suspend to Ram"
> + - Processor power is removed.
> + - Devices are placed into a low power state.
> + - Power may be removed from all system buses.
> + - Memory context is preserved by placing memory in Self-Refresh
> + - Execution begins from processor's reset vector

If S2 and S3 are same, you should use exactly same text. It seems to say
exactly same thing in slightly different words.


> +S4 - "Suspend to Disk", aka "Hibernate"
> + - All power may be removed from the system.
> + - All device context may be lost.
> + - Context is usually written to persistant storage (e.g. disk).
> + - Execution begins at processor's reset vector; the firmware
> + will usually load the OS boot loader.
> +
> +S5 - Soft Off
> + - Technically not a sleep state
> + - No context is retained
> + - OS is not responsible for saving context
> + - OS must completely reinitialise itself on 'resume' (power-on)
> + - Wake events may still trigger the system to resume from sleep.

this should be S5, no?

This url does not seem too real.
