Description Stewart Adam 2007-02-27 18:53:00 EST
Description of problem:
My system will not suspend when click gnome-power-manager's 'suspend' button
because it seems libata is having trouble stopping devices. Here are the
relevant log messages:

Feb 27 17:49:15 MyBox kernel: SCSI device sda: write cache: enabled, read cache:
enabled, doesn't support DPO or FUA
Feb 27 17:50:00 MyBox gnome-power-manager: (admin) Suspending computer because
user clicked suspend from tray menu
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: ata7: suspend failed, device 0 still active
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: pci_device_suspend():
ata_pci_device_suspend+0x0/0x2b [libata]() returns -16
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: suspend_device(): pci_device_suspend+0x0/0x4b()
returns -16
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: ATA: abnormal status 0x7F on port 0x00016807
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: ata7.00: configured for UDMA/33
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: ata1: soft resetting port
Feb 27 17:50:03 MyBox kernel: Some devices failed to suspend

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Enable can_suspend in gnome-power-manager's gconf preferences if needed
2. Click the panel icon
3. Select 'Suspend'
Actual results:
The system begins to suspend (I can hear drives power down, screen goes black)
then after about half a second the screen comes back to life and the drives spin
back up.

Expected results:
The system suspends

Additional info:
Not sure if this helps or not, but relevant hardware is:
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-965P-S3
HDD: SATA WD Raptor 150GB
(Using the Intel ICH8 SATA controller, not the Gigabyte one as the Gigabyte one
is much, much slower.)
GPU: nVidia 7300 GS, PCI-E

Does this still happen with rawhide? Can you also check for common problems here
http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/ please. Thanks.
Comment 2 Stewart Adam 2007-05-25 17:46:29 EDT
This doesn't occur anymore, although my system doesn't resume from the suspend..
But that's for another bug...
