x38 rebooting(power management) issue and Pci audio drivers

Recommended Posts

hi!

this is not really a "big" problem, but whenever I have installed something that needs a reboot, the system only manages to shut down screen, mouse and keyboard, all hardware continues active so i always need to press the button twice manually. perhaps this is a bios power management setting?

 is it possible to adjust bios to automatically accept the request too reboot? i had no similar issues with ubuntu and mint earlier. 

edit: Audio problem solved nicely...;)

 mount -uw /

rm -rf /System/Library/Extensions/****.kext { Replace **** with KEXT extension }

I found the source of the problem it seems...for some reason a PCI pwr management thing kills the screen. when i did a clean install without installing the Juli@ sound card drivers the system runs clean, unfortunately i can't use the Audio cards in general. so ill just keep it clean until later. perhaps someone else finds this information useful as well:)
