Related output of messages and dmesg
Contains a tail of /var/log/messages as well as the output of dmesg which had
been cleared before suspending.
Thinking about this is probably a feature not a bug. I've started trolling
around the NVidia forum hoping for a new driver release.
A nice person from the NVidia forums pointed me to the following for a work
around. Hopefully a new NVidia driver will be released soon.
Edit the following file in the kernel source, include/linux/pm.h. On line 214
change "#define PM_EVENT_SUSPEND 2" to "#define PM_EVENT_SUSPEND 3".
ok, nvidia driver problems are out of our control.
