Description of problem:
I have the final release of Fedora core 2 installed on a Dell INSPIRON
9100 portable, and there is no suspend to RAM (or any effect) when
pressing Fn/ESC or when closing the lid. 

The battery monitor app works OK, so ACPI seems to be working.

I have updated the portable with the latest Dell BIOS upgrade.

From reading the web, others appear to have this problem also with
Fedora Core 3.

I also tried-
echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep
echo 4 > /proc/acpi/sleep 
with no effect.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Install Fedora core 2
2.close lid, or press "Fn-Esc" which should do suspend to RAM

Actual Results:  No effect

Expected Results:  Suspend to RAM

Comment 1 Dave Jones 2005-04-16 05:17:27 UTC
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.

Thank you.
