Fedora Core Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released. "Fedora 8 Release Candidate 3 has been released on the torrent site. Both DVD and Live images have been provided. Unless something goes terribly wrong, these will be the same bits (modulo gpg signed SHA1SUM files) that will go to the mirrors for the final Fedora 8 release." Update: There is an interview up about CodecBuddy's inclusion in Fedora 8 with the two developers behind this feature.

Going to try this one. Perhaps my laptop won't die when I close the lid like with the newest Ubuntu.

Out of box ubuntu in fact won't be killing your laptop. Culprit is the laptop mode, a "feature" that had to be enabled by manually changing configuration files, that slowly kills laptop hard drives.

Fortunately damage spreadout is way reduced because of this.

Not what I meant. I was talking about when I close my lid and my machine crashes and only can be revived back to life by killing the power.

You do not have to enable anything. Ubuntu kills your laptop hd slowly out of the box.

K, sorry but I'm pissed by this behaviour and there is no official fix available.

If what you are describing is the same as my experience, then your problem is solved in Fedora. On my Dell the screen would turn black and the keyboard would lock up using Ubuntu 7.10 - not Fedora 8 RC.
