I love my nx8220 except that I cannot get it to reliably suspend & resume! :( Anyone with suggestions on the ideal kernel and video driver to use to resolve this issue, please go to the Gentoo Wiki (http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Main_Page) and post your thoughts. Thanks!

ACPI does not work properly!

I have installed the latest ubuntu version (and latest BIOS version). I cannot use the dynamic mode because it leads to massive overheating problems, due to buggy acpi. So I have a 2GHz processor running permanently at 50%.

Everything works fine except the WiFi

Well, that's pretty much it. Even with the latest ipw2200 modules for wireless network, it still chokes on Ad-Hoc connection here. Other than that, things are working great with Debian Linux.
