SubjectPowerNow!, cpufreq, and swsusp
Date
Just compiled the 2.5.63 kernel with the intention of
getting support for certain features of my laptop. I;ve got
a Mobile Athlon XP 1800+ w/ PowerNow! technology and was
hoping to use it, as well as be able to "hibernate" the
machine.

From .config:

#
# Power management options (ACPI, APM)
#
CONFIG_PM=y
CONFIG_SOFTWARE_SUSPEND=y

#

And from /var/log/messages:

From /etc/lilo.conf:
# LILO configuration file
# generated by 'liloconfig'
#
# Start LILO global section
append="hdc=ide-scsi, resume=/dev/hda3"
boot = /dev/hda
compact # faster, but won't work on all systems.
prompt


When I boot, I get a message that no resume image was found
(which is fine) and it boots normally. However, the
documentation for swsusp says the following:
"You need to append resume=/dev/your_swap_partition to
kernel command line. Then you suspend by echo 4 >
/proc/acpi/sleep."

As shown above, that line has been entered into lilo.conf,
however, /proc/acpi/sleep does not exist. What is the
problem here?

Also, cpufreq doesn't seem to do anything. Should it be
working automatically? Even when the machine sits unattended
for over 8 hours, the fan never turns off and the cpu
temperature is consustently 69-70 degrees C. What must I do
here? Thanks for your help!
