Description of problem:
The system hangs at "stopping tasks" with two to four ='s and no
further output when attempting to suspend on a Gigabyte 8ITXE. This is
an i850 pentium IV motherboard with the latest BIOS. (AMIBIOS,
gigabyte revision F4). No devices appear to change power state.
In addition to kernel-2.6.5-1.332, I have also tried
kernel-2.6.3-184.108.40.206.1 and kernel-2.6.5-1.327; none work. Have also
tried a kernel with 4G4G disabled, this doesn't help.
So far I have only been attempting to suspend from single user mode
(no X running). I will attach a list of the loaded modules and various
Video card is a NVidia Geforce 4 Ti4400 (AGP) manufactured by PNY
technologies. I don't see any BIOS updates for it on their website.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep
Actual Results: freezes at "stopping tasks"
Expected Results: should enter S3 standby, if the Gigabyte BIOS is
configured to support S3 in the BIOS setup: perhipherals connected to
atx power supply should power down, fans spin down, monitor should
enter low power state
