Description Andrew Gormanly 2005-12-15 11:06:04 EST
Description of problem:
Right-click on the battery applet and select "Suspend Computer..." does not
suspend computer...

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Battery Charge Monitor 2.8.0 from gnome-applets-2.8.0-5

How reproducible:
Every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Right-click on the battery applet and select "Suspend Computer..."
Actual results:
Error pop-up window, title "Error" and text "The Suspend command '/usr/bin/apm
-s was unsuccessful."

Expected results:
Machine suspends to RAM

Additional info:
Sony Vaio S2XP.  "echo mem > /sys/power/state" works perfectly.  

Given the explicit mention of ACPI suspend on the RHEL "Features and Benefits"
page (http://www.redhat.com/en_us/USA/rhel/details/features/), I suspected that
the use of APM here was just a mistake in the default configuration of the
battery applet, requiring a one-line fix.  However, I can't find any command
equivalent.  I'm going to try out the acpitool from Fedora Extras, and will
report back if it works.

[From the "Features and Benefits" page:

"Advanced configuration and power interface: Support for the ACPI standard
enables a wide range of power management capabilities (battery monitoring,
automated power down, suspend), and provides a foundation for increasingly
sophisticated features in the future."
