Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 188413
ThinkPad resumes from Suspend with a blank screen, not usable at all
Last modified: 2015-03-04 20:16:48 EST
Description of problem:
This is a Thinkpad specific issue where subjected Thinkpad and few other models
are not able to resume from suspend in a useful state without workarounds. The
clear problem is that dispaly remains in a blank state while the input is
working via keyboard.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
After every suspend to RAM, upon resume
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Click "System" -> "Suspend"
2. After System has suspended, resume from the power button
System resumes from suspend state but the diplay is in a blank state and is not
useful at all.
Fully functional system resume from the suspended state
I am testing the same on a Think Pad R50e with intel 82852/855GM chipset.
I think this bug should more correctly be assigned to pm-utils, as it requires a
resume action similar to what we do with intel and ati cards.

Many thanks for updating here and suggesting timely, I have returned to update
on this BZ, while I am using FC6.
This is working out of the box with FC6 and the suspend is , suspend to disk,
Everything works beautifully fine, no issues, on my part this can be closed.
Closing FC5 bugs as RAWHIDE makes very little sense ;)
