Description Peter Robinson 2007-02-06 11:10:34 UTC
I have a Dell Latitude D620 which is a Centrino Duo with a i9xx chipset and a
sata disk using libata and Fedora Core 6. The machine suspends and resumes fine
when there isn't a HDD password set. Our corporate laptop usage policy requires
all laptops to have a HDD password set. 

When a HDD password is set the machine suspends fine but on resume it doesn't
properly come back. X comes up with a blank screen and if you switch to a
console it just starts spewing libata disk errors. It should initially display
the BIOS screen and prompt for the password. It did this fine on my old laptop
which was a Dell Latitude D600 running Fedora Core 5. I've never run FC5 on this
laptop, nor FC6 on the old one so not sure if its due to move from PATA/ide to
SATA/libata or a kernel bug or something else.

Seems to be fixed in Fedora 7 + recent updates.
