25 I suspended the system, but now I can't wake it up again! I hit the
26 power button, and I heard a sound through the speakers similar to an
27 error sound. I would say a barb sound, but I doubt any of you would be
28 able to make sense of it. The only visual output of that computer is a
29 video output component going to the TV set. I work on that computer
30 through ssh from another one in another room. Should I just restart it
31 manually? If not, how do I wake it up?
