Description aron vrtala 2007-11-02 04:07:57 EDT
Description of problem:

S3 sleep causes X-display on notebook to remain dim (too dim to properly read)
after resume. FN-key light controls can't be used any longer (no reaction).
Hibernate will not show this effect . it will actually elevate this problem.
Tried several hal-qirks but no result.

If BIOS seleceted light control via light sensor is used situation with
backlight is better, however controls remain unusable after suspend/resume.

Kernel upgrade from to causes keyboard to fail
in many occasions after suspend/resume causing a full stop (no X-server kill is
possible via keyboard).

System uses intel video driver (i810 & 915resol. will not work).

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

libsmbios bin and libs are installed Version 0.13.10-1.fc7.

lspci shows the graphics to be:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Mobile Integrated Graphics
Controller (rev 0c)

and Xorg says in more detail: 
(--) Chipset 965GM found

How reproducible:

Backlight dim and unusable FN Keys to control backlight: 100%
Keyboard fail after resume: about 60%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. suspend notebook, either on panel using power manager or using pm-suspend
2. resume notebook (either powerswitch or opening the lid
Actual results:

backlight stays dim, dellLcdBrightness will not work setting values, Fn-Keys not
working. Sometimes keyboard frozen (only FN-Esc will put the system to suspend
mode again).

Expected results:

backlight at same level as before suspending or at least controllable.
dellLcdBrightness should be able to control backlight. Fn-Keys are expected to
work. Frozen keyboard should never occur.

Additional info:

Several notebooks show this behavior, even if installed with an i386 F7 system
(eg. running x64_86 is not the problem).

Would some quirk
(http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/quirk-suspend-index.html) help?
What I mean is, that you could try to go through
http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/quirk-suspend-debug.html and play
with pm-suspend so long as it will be working for you.

Please, let us know whether some quirk helps.
Comment 2 Michael E Brown 2007-11-02 12:40:36 EDT
I just found out that my D620 needs the following quirks:

pm-suspend --quirk-vbe-post --quirk-vbemode-restore

These two quirks fix: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=358631
 and: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=358671

Possibly these would help here?
Comment 3 Matěj Cepl 2007-11-04 10:07:11 EST
Please, see https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=358631#c9 and continue
accordingly in this bug as well.
Comment 4 aron vrtala 2007-11-05 04:05:02 EST
I've already played days with pm-suspend and different setups of quirks in hal.
Using /usr/share/hal/fdi/policy/10osvendor/10-dell-laptop-brightness.fdi and
/usr/share/hal/fdi/information/10freedesktop/20-video-quirk-pm-dell.fdi and the
modes described by Michael. I did also try power_management.quirk.no_fb,
power_management.quirk.s3_bios, power_management.quirk.s3_mode, the latter both
together with appropriate change to the kernel. No success.

64bit debugging is unfortunately not possible (as described on
qirk-suspend-debug homepage).

AFAIK D620 and D830 have _different_ video hardware (945 vs 965 chipsets).
Quirks working to D620 need not neccessarily work.
Comment 5 Matěj Cepl 2007-11-07 06:00:15 EST
OK, I give up -- could you please attach to this bug as separate uncompressed
attachments your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log and I will pass this
bug to developers to sort it out.

Just contains hibernates.
Comment 8 aron vrtala 2007-11-07 07:14:07 EST
Attached both requested files. I will capture another Xorg.0.log for with just
one suspend in it. This one has several hibernates in it.

Thank you for help!
Comment 9 aron vrtala 2007-11-13 07:56:09 EST
I just came back to my D830. First I saw lots of updates including new kernel I yum'ed them and tried suspending. While the suspend through
PowerManager (2.18.3) did not let the system resume correctly (see above) it did
do the suspend using pm-suspend --quirk-vbe-post --quirk-vbemode-restore
as described by Michael. I don't overview what's effectively new, but a fully up
to date Fedora 7 will work using this. I think this can be used to program hal.

I'm satified. This issue can be closed by now.

Thank you all, Aron
