Description Julian Sikorski 2007-10-12 11:14:06 EDT
Description of problem:
Whenever I leave the laptop idle long enough to suspend (S3), right after it
finishes resuming it goes to hibernate (S4). What is more, upon a second resume
I get a popup saying that hibernate failed, although nothing seems to be busted.
Note that it does not happen when suspend is triggered using other method, like
for instance closing the lid.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set the suspend time
2. Wait
3. Resume
Actual results:
Laptop resumes and then immediately hibernates

Expected results:
Laptop resumes and stays resumed

Additional info:
To me it looks like both pm-suspend and pm-hibernate are called, as the
hibernate happens quite fast. For reference, I have Toshiba Satellite A100-847
here, which worked fine under F7 running 2.6.23-rc* kernel.

I'm seeing this too, on an i386 installation on a Dell Laptop.
Comment 2 Matthias Clasen 2007-10-12 13:40:15 EDT
Here is the result of grep gnome-power-manager /var/log/messages:

Oct 11 14:30:15 localhost gnome-power-manager: (mclasen) Resuming computer
Oct 12 12:27:38 localhost gnome-power-manager: (mclasen) Hibernating computer
because System idle
Oct 12 13:21:46 localhost gnome-power-manager: (mclasen) Resuming computer
Oct 12 13:22:25 localhost gnome-power-manager: (mclasen) Resuming computer

As you can see, the machine hibernated while I was away for lunch, which is ok.
When I came back I resumed, and then it immediately suspended again.
Comment 3 David Zeuthen 2007-10-12 14:06:19 EDT
What worries me is that there's no logging for the last suspend action. So, if
anyone can reproduce while running

 gnome-power-manager --no-daemon --verbose

then please post the log here. Thanks.
