Hey guys, in my eariler post where I posted this:
Quote:Fix suspend and allow your keyboard/mouse(cannot confirm for any usb device) to wake up the system.
That actually only worked once, then the next time I tried to wake from suspend, the system just woke to a blank screen with a blinking cursor, I could not type or ALT + F1 to open a terminal. It seems this is another known issue, and I have been searching on some ubuntu forums to find the solution, but I was wondering if anyone here knew of a solution? (I have searched the xbmc forums with the search function)
In case you were curious, here are the threads that seem to be talking about the issue:

Hey guys, just a quick question. It might not belong here but wanted to try before I made a separate post.
I have a 500gb external HDD connected to my Acer Aspire running Xbmc live. Is it possible to ftp into the external drive in anyway to upload content to it?
I can connect to Xbmc via filezilla and I can see the external HDD (root/media/external hdd name) but I cannot edit anything on it, it says I do not have permission.
Is there anything I can do to add stuff to the external hdd?

I haven't tried this but are you using root? If you need to you can use
when logged on (via cntrl-alt-f1 or putty) as your normal user to change/set your root password.

Hi, I have problem to shut down xbmc live installed on the HDD from shutdown menu. The system just woke to a blank screen with a blinking cursor, I could not type ALT + F1 to open a terminal.
Doesn't make sense if I will choose in shutdown menu - suspend, hibernate or shutdown.
Power button on the case is working correctly.

First of all thanks to everyone who has been commenting and submitting posts, it's been very helpful
I managed to set up my Acer Revo Aspire and loaded it with XBMC live..
Everything is working fine from wireless internet, iphone app remote etc..the only issue is my external hard drive.
I didn't go down the route of streaming video from an in-house server, instead i bought a good 1.5tb external hard drive (samsung), started burning all my dvds, music and connected it directly to my acer revo.
The issue i have is this..everytime i start up my Acer Revo..the external hard drive doesn't automatically start/boot up as well?
I have to physically unplug the usb cable from either the external hard drive or acer revo and plug it back in, the hard drive then lights up and all systems are go!
Any idea why this is? my hard drive is formatted to NTFS, mainly because i couldn't transfer more than 4GB with FAT32.
As you might have gathered, it is connected via USB cable and the skin i run is AEON Dark
Any help would be appreciated

^ are you sure that is not how the usb hardrive is functioning as designed ?
what happens when you boot it up windows with it attached.

Thanks for the reply..
I never used to have an issue before, this kicked about 2 months ago..i don't know whether it is because i formatted it to NTFS format...used to be FAT32..
I have a mac and windows running under bootcamp, no issues...i connect the hard drive and they are recognised with no problems.
Start up my acer revo with hard drive connected via USB and it doesn't start..i unplug the usb and connect it back into acer, and viola..it starts and files are all accessible.
Maybe there is an auto run file that i am missing? wait..does that make sense?

there probably is a way to simulate a unplug/ replug in linux.
for starters what is the output of
