Description of problem:
When I close the lid of my laptop, the display just turns off. After I
reopen it and try to use my computer, the display remains off and
there is no way I can resume it unless I reboot the computer. I tried
looking for a way to change this, but unfortunately I couldn't.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Boot system into graphical mode
2.Close the lid of the laptop & wait a few seconds
3.Open the lid
Actual Results: The display remains turned off and there's no way to
Expected Results: The display should turn back on so you can normally
resume your activity.
My display is Dell 1600x1200 lcd, the video card is Ati Mobility
Radeon 9000 (M9).
This could possibly be a kernel or xorg-x11 issue.
Please retest with kernel-2.6.5-1.358 or newer. If it fails, please
retest with the same version but i586 kernel. Report both test
I tested with kernel-126.96.36.199.358.i686 this morning, but unfortunately
I still get the same result. I will try the i586 version in the
afternoon and I will post the results immediately.
I still have the same problem, even after I upgraded to Fedora Core 2
final. The only thing I could do is to edit grub.conf with the options
acpi=off and apm=off. The display resumes properly now, but I don't
want to lose all ACPI settings.
I am experiencing the same problem.
Dell Latitude C610
nVidia GeForce 2 Go
Fedora Core 2
I've tried using the nvidia driver instead of nv but X doesn't even
start up with it.
any improvement with teh 2.6.9 update kernel ?
Fedora Core 2 has now reached end of life, and no further updates will be
provided by Red Hat. The Fedora legacy project will be producing further kernel
updates for security problems only.
If this bug has not been fixed in the latest Fedora Core 2 update kernel, please
try to reproduce it under Fedora Core 3, and reopen if necessary, changing the
product version accordingly.
