Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

If this makes sense to you.
Sorry for the really slow response.
Have you been able to try a newer kernel or Fedora release, and does it help at
all? (Work on hibernation and suspend to ram is going on all the time, so you
can generally expect that newer kernels will improve the situation).

To my regret I cannot upgrade to a later Fedora release
as since Fedora 7 PATA disks are always treated as SCSI disks
and SCSI disks cannot contain more than 15 partitions,
while I do have more than twenty of them.
It seems I should have to switch to some other Linux distribution.
OTOH, I had handed that ugly notebook over,
so anyway I can provide no info on the bug anymore.
thanks giving us an update
