Description of problem:
I can suspend my nec versa p520 laptop by typing apm -s.
Turning the power on again gets me back to where I was. Both on the
console and X.
There is one problem. The LCD backlight won't come back on.
So I almost can't see what's on my screen..

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. apm -s
2. turn back on laptop
3. UI is hardly visible because the LCD backlight is off.

Expected Results:  Backlight that is restored to the correct/previous
brightness level.

This is almost certainly an interaction between the kernel or X and
your APM bios.

Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
