Resume works great (after upgrading BIOS and setting CHANGEVT in
except for this little detail. The keyboard repeat is very sluggish. I can
easily fix this with a
"xset r rate 200 100", but anyway, it would be nice if I didn't have to ;-)

My computer is a Dell Inspiron 7000.

Best regards,

This is a problem with your BIOS (it's not supposed to change the keyboard rate
at suspend/resume).
The obvious workaround is to add the xset line to
/etc/sysconfig/apm-scripts/apmcontinue (which is executed at apm events).
