Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 203254
Suspension lasts 1 sec before computer comes out of it
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:40 EST
Description of problem:
I use FC5. Even though I use a desktop computer connected to AC all the time, I
used gnome-power-preferences to set the suspension on (after 1 hour of no use).
I want to do this in order to lengthen the life of the computer's "internals"
(hard-disk, screen, etc.).
Problem is, the second the computer halts and comes into stand-by, it
immediately comes out of it (and back into the screen-saver, meaning it's not a
matter of mouse moving from some reason etc.).
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I have a Pentium 4, kernel 2.6.17-1.2139_FC5, gnome 2.14.2, gnome-power-manager
2.14.3-1 and hal 0.5.7.1-2.fc5. Never had problems shutting it down or
logging-out or anything, only to suspend it.
Steps to Reproduce:
System->Suspend or System->Shut Down...->Suspend
Wait an hour, until computer automatically suspends itself (thanks to
Execute "dbus-send --system --print-reply --dest=org.freedesktop.Hal
The computer halts for just a second (you hear the HD's fan stopping, the USB
mouse's light is turned-off, etc.) then everything starts working again.
Stand-by - suspension - computer to stay in suspension until I move the mouse
or press some key on the keyboard...
I reported this bug in bugzilla.gnome.org under gnome-power-manager, and was
told this is HAL's fault or maybe the kernel's fault, so here I am in
FROM ONE OF MY LOGWATCH REPORTS (ROOT RECEIVES BY INTERNAL EMAIL)
--------------------- Kernel Begin ------------------------
WARNING: Kernel Errors Present
Could not power down device <NULL>: error -22 ...: 3 Time(s)
NTFS-fs error (device hda1): l ...: 2 Time(s)
---------------------- Kernel End -------------------------
I don't think the NTFS-fs error has anything to do with the problem, but I'm
possitively sure that the first error is deeply related to it.
Thank you for your help,
Reassigning to kernel.
Could you please attach your dmesg? It looks like a device is failing to
suspend, and the dmesg should help us identify which one.
Lots of thanks,
But I now have Fedora Core 6, with kernel 2.6.18(-1.2849), hal 0.5.8.1(-5),
gnome 2.16, gnome-power-manager 2.16.0(-4), and I use compiz
[0.0.13-0.32.20060817git]. And as far as I can see, this problem vanished at
some point - I don't know which of the above programs was responsible for it,
but I can't really know now.
If anyone else is experiencing this problem, please post info about it, and/or
upgrade to FC6.
Sorry and thank you!
Closing as per last comment with 'insufficient data' because we don't really
know anything about the cause or what solved it.
