Default T400 "spontaneous" reboots
Something wonky in the acpi behavior on a T400.

I assume that something is malfunctioning during some power save operation and causing the laptop to reboot, hard. Thoughts?

Default T400 "spontaneous" reboots
The only facts you present are:

1. You have a T400 laptop.
2. It does a spontaneous reboot.

Saying there is "Something wonky in the acpi behavior on a T400" is not enough. Here are examples of factual information that might be helpful:

Which T400 (there are several models)?

Which video card & what driver are you using?

What version of PCBSD?

Did PCBSD complete a successful install and a successful video driver install?

Did other versions of PCBSD run successfully before this install?

What were you doing when it spontaneously rebooted (i.e., in process or booting, installing video driver, running program x, inserting a USB device, other?)

Have you tried other boot options from the welcome screen like "No ACPI" or "VESA" & what was the result?

Does the computer go into suspend and will it resume?

What is the output of dmesg

What are the contents of /etc/rc.conf

What are the contents of /var/logs/Xorg.0.log

-- Indeed, thank you for your thoughts.

Which T400 (there are several models)?
hard to tell at the moment. I'll post this later when I shutdown the laptop to read the sticker when it's taken out of its docking station.

Which video card & what driver are you using?
This T400 has a "magical" set of two video adapters. It contains an ATI and and Intel Integrated adapter. I have had no luck getting PC-BSD 8.1 to do anything useful with the ATI adapter when its enabled, so I switched to the Intel adapter with more success.

What version of PCBSD?
-- Version 8.1, AMD64

Did PCBSD complete a successful install and a successful video driver install?
Yes, it installed and I chose the Intel "3d" graphics adapter.

Did other versions of PCBSD run successfully before this install?
No idea, never tried out PC-BSD before, so far its pretty nice.

What were you doing when it spontaneously rebooted (i.e., in process or booting, installing video driver, running program x, inserting a USB device, other?)
Nothing, I was distracted by something at the time. I did note that the machine had fired up the screen saver and was running through various images.


Have you tried other boot options from the welcome screen like "No ACPI" or "VESA" & what was the result?
ACPI--> Yes, still fails. The display goes blank at some point and never recovers. I can, however, power off the machine via a short press of the power button.


Does the computer go into suspend and will it resume?
Yes, and yes. No issues with suspend or hibernate AFAIK.

The ATi driver has been problematic with FreeBSD/PCBSD. Intel has been so-so, and has had some problems with the 8.x operating systems. I have an older laptop with an Intel 82855 video chip which worked great on 8.0 but I have had to use the vesa driver with 8.1 and 8.2-Beta1 and 9.0-Alpha. You might try a few things like:

(1) Change the intel 3-d video driver to the non-3d version
(2) Change the video driver to vesa (but you will have less resolution)

Both of those changes can be effected by choosing option #7 at the initial welcome screen.

You can also consider

(3) turning off desktop effects (Start -> Favorites -> System Settings -> Desktop Effects -> General Tab -> uncheck the box that says "Enable Desktop Effects", and

(4) turning off the screen saver

However, I notice that your system has been set up to use two monitors. Notice the last half of your xorg.conf file where it states:

======= Excerpt from /etc/X11/xorg.conf =================
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor1"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"
EndSection


Section "ServerFlags"
Option "Xinerama" "1"
Option "AutoAddDevices" "False"
Option "AllowEmptyInput" "Off"
EndSection


Section "Device"
Identifier "Card0"
Screen 0
Driver "intel"
VendorName "Intel Video Driver"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
Screen 0
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Card1"
Screen 1
Driver "intel"
VendorName "Intel Video Driver"
BusID "PCI:0:2:0"
Screen 1
EndSection


Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Card0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1280x1024"
EndSubSection
EndSection


Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen1"
Device "Card1"
Monitor "Monitor1"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1024"
EndSubSection
EndSection

======== End Excerpt ==================

The excerpt shows you are running two monitors (Monitor 0 and Monitor 1), two video cards (Card0 and Card1) each running the intel video driver, and the monitors are running different resolutions on their display screens (Screen0 running @ Mode 1280x1024 and Screen1 running @ Mode 1600x1024). You are also running Xinerama which allows you to "combine" the two monitors as if they were a single unit over which you can move a window on the first screen over to the second screen. I did not get the impression that you were running a twin video card/twin monitor setup. If you are not, it would be a good idea to re-run option 7 (mentioned above) to reconfigure your xorg.conf.

The dmesg and rc.conf seemed otherwise unremarkable. I'm looking around for additional information and seeing if I can get more expertise into your problem.
