Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 181890
Suspend "Bricks" my laptop.
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:25:22 EST
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #181889 +++
In recent rawhide spins, the option to shutdown has been removed and replaced
with a "Suspend" button. If suspend worked, or at least did nothing useful, I
wouldn't complain. Unfortunately this button "bricks" my laptop. Suspend seems
to work, the machine goes into a condition where it's apparently off, but the
power button blinks. Unfortunately the power button then does almost nothing
else. Holding the power button does eventually really power off the machine, but
it then does not turn it back on. Removing/replacing the batteries is the only
way to recover.
If there is any data I can provide to help track this down please let me know.
FC-5-Test3-20060216.0/4.92/x86_64 (Xen not installed)
on eMachines M6807 Laptop w/latest manufacturer's bios.
shutdown/reboot have been re-added, but hopefully the work we've done on suspend
the last few days has improved things. Can you try with the latest
I'm bringing the laptop to work today, will update it and then try it.

Sysreport output for my laptop.
Still bricks on suspend.

Sysreport doesn't grab dmidecode...
Same here! I think that's the "usual" problem with the radeon m9 card.

my sysreport for radeon m9
Chris, can you load radeonfb with the option "radeon_force_sleep=1" and then try
to suspend? If so, we can add the card to the whitelist easily...
My system uses radeon, not radeonfb. I manually loaded the module with the
requested option, but it still bricks. I do not know how to make the machine
automatically load radeonfb (and radeon was still loaded)
It seems radeonfb has little to do with X. It makes the virtual consoles use
smaller fonts, but that's about all I can see that it does.
