Description of problem:
Suspend command seems to work normally. The batter light is blinking occasionally which means that the system is suspended to ram. But when I try to wake up the system it freezes totally. Power and HDD leds stay on, but the system don't respond even to holding down the power button. Only way to recover is to take out the battery, which makes this bug a bit nasty for users that are not so familiar with computers.
The system is HP compaq nw8000 laptop, running updated FC5test3 with out any outside packages. DRI is disabled for Xorg since it crashed the system.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Actual Results: Screen is blank, power led and HDD-led are on. System doesn't respond even to holding down the power button. I have to remove the battery to get the system to reboot.
Expected Results: System restores the state it was before the suspend was called.
Happy to provide any other information required (or even an SSH connection to the computer, as it's now just used for testing FC5 untill the final version is released.

In the last few updates, some users upgrading from FC4->FC5
have reported that installing a kernel update has left their
systems unbootable. If you have been affected by this problem
please check you only have one version of device-mapper & lvm2
installed. See bug 207474 for further details.
If this bug is a problem preventing you from installing the
release this version is filed against, please see bug 169613.

problem, please file a separate bug for the new problem.
Indeed the kernel 2.6.18-1.2200.fc5 has fixed the issue. This bug can be closed
as far I'm concerned. Thanks!
