seems that actual no Acer NB wakes up correctly and the problem seems to be 
the video, The best I get is a wierd 4color display, seems to be a 640x480 
part snapshot picture of the 1280x768 I use. Anything else is usable, so I 
can shutdown blind or to check I created a shortcut to play a music and it 
does. Also my mp3 is mounted by devd. It doesn't matter w or w/o X. And like 
you say, I tried RH-FC and it also does not come back.
