+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #188413 +++
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.

Awesomely simple fix: remove the VBE post in /etc/pm/functions-intel.
Or ship the newer pm-utils and my hal patch to automate this.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
I just want to say that I have also this issue with Fedora Core 6 with latest
updates. My laptop is IBM Thinkpad R52
Please fix this in Fedora Core 6 and in Fedora 7.
ps. If you need someone for testing I'm willing to volunteer my time.
I found a fix for my IBM R52 laptop:
you need to edit /boot/grub/menu.lst and add "acpi_sleep=s3_bios" at the end of
comment #1 doesn't work with IBM R52 with Intel graphics!
Please make this work by default on Fedora 7.
Please see http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/temp/quirk/quirk-intro.html
quirk guide isn't too helpful because I tried using it to fix my other laptop:
and it didn't get me far! :(
So? It's different hardware...
Is this now fixed with Fedora 7 updates or Fedora 8?
Forgot this was still open. Closing.
