Acer 4530 Standby Hibernate problems – Solved

My friend recently bought an Acer 4530 laptop which is quite decent. But it seemed like it had some issues with Standby and Hibernate since it would just hang when we clicked on them. The only way out was to hard reboot the system. I was using WinXP+sp2.

I got an idea that the problem might be because of the drivers. So installed sp3 on the same thing and tried it out. Works like a charm now.

Down for the count

Been suffering from diarrhoea since yesterday. Skipped work today. Went to the doc this morning and got some medicine, hopefully should feel better by tomorrow.

KDE and QT

Have always been a linux user. But just recently felt the need to contribute to the open source community as well. Being primarily a java developer, C++ doesn’t come very naturally to me. But I’m willing to learn and am going through it one step at a time.

I did find the following tut for C++ for Java devs:

But for now, I’ve installed KDevelop and going through the following tut I found on the dev site for kde:

KDE effectively uses QT libs from Trolltech.
