Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 230834
suspend fails on notebook (IBM)
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:58 EST
Description of problem:
it is not possible to suspend/hibernate the computer. Same configuration on FC6
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora Core 7 Test 2 Kernel 2.6.20-1.2949
Steps to Reproduce:
1. try to suspend a Thinkpad R52 with standard installation
neither suspend nor hibernate is working
suspend (acpi_s3) or hibernate
Hardware is a Thinkpad R52 with Pentium Mobile and 1GB RAM. ACPI and all needed
components are installed and working. The identical configuration under FC6
works (on the same machine).
dmesg includes a few messages about the event:
Mar 3 11:48:31 Oblivion gnome-power-manager: (kaonashi) Der Rechner wird in
Bereitschaft versetzt weil die D-BUS-Methode Suspend() wurde aufgerufen (in
english this would be like "the computer will be suspended because the D-BUS
called the method Suspend()")
Mar 3 11:48:31 Oblivion gnome-power-manager: (kaonashi) Permission denied: Not
in active session code='30' quark='g-exec-error-quark'
Mar 3 11:48:31 Oblivion gnome-power-manager: (kaonashi) Der Rechner wird
aufgeweckt (english: the computer will wake up)
Mar 3 11:48:31 Oblivion gnome-power-manager: (kaonashi) suspend failed
After updating the Kernel to 2.6.20-1.2967 suspend is working now.
Had to reopen the bug because with kernel 2.6.20-1.299x the uspend fails again.
The error messages are still the same.
I have the same issue on a Sony Vaio VGN-S260. Suspend works under FC6, but it
does not under 6.91 or 6.92 + updates.
I do not, however, have similarly helpful dmesg output available.
I'm not sure if my issue is the same - with today's updated (April 4) my system
will suspend, but then seems to panic on resume.
I have created a separate bug -
since I am not sure my problem belongs with this one.
With the actual kernel 2.6.20-1.3045 suspend is working again, but I want to
leave this bug report open as I don't know if the next update of the kernel is
Bulk message: Fedora 7 test bugs should be filed against "devel", not against
test1/2/3. This isn't obvious, I know. Moving this report so it isn't lost.
Ron: How did you make IBM R52 to resume on Fedora Core 6?
I get it to suspend but on resume everything works except that my laptop LCD
stays off and I can't use it. I know that everyhing works because if I have
external monitor connected then my external monitors turns on when I do resume
but internal stays off.
Valent: I followed this How-To to make suspend work correctly
I Love you! I had laptop over a year and now it finally works perfectly on
Fedora Core 6! Thank you!!!
Will this fix be incorporated in F7 so that other unexperieced users don't have
to do all this and so that it "Just Works" ?
See http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/ for how to do this
I have only Fedora 6 installed on my IBM laptop, but if I use Fedora 7 live cd
and test quirk and confirm it works - then I can ask you (fedora devels) to add
my this laptop to quirk list. Am I correct?
