So gals and guys, try disabling cpu disconnect in bios and see whether aopic now runs stable.

Yes that fix it. Well time will tell but I cannot make it crash with
hdparm -tT or cat /dev/hda so far. I'm dumping hda to /dev/null right

After testing to make it crash, I used athcool to reenable CPU
disconnect, and guess what, test after that just crashed the box.
You found the problem, congratulations.


Isn't it possible to ad athcool's code into the kernel, maybe into the pm section or even make it an kernel option. It seems to be a nice workaround for the time-being.
