    The proper way to make it work is to close the serial port when the computer is about to enter hibernate and reopen it when the system resumes. I could do it, but I think the source may have been modified from the original to work with RR, so I was waiting to hear from CdRsKuLL on this point before I started into it.

    Yes; I can hibernate fine when the I-Bus is connected directly to a serial port, but the software needs the PM notifications when it's connected via a USB dongle... If you can dig up the source code, I'll try to get the modification done. Thanks!

    CDR, Got a few questions for you... I have a BMW E34, I retrofitted the E46 M3 steering wheel in. The steering wheel itself is an I-bus controller, but what's required to get the buttons to work? As I said, I have an E34, which has no interface to the steering wheel... any guidance appreciated.
