Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 233246
Laptop overheats on resume from suspend to ram
Last modified: 2008-02-07 23:28:00 EST
Description of problem:
My laptop a toshiba satellite A105 S361, suspends to ram perfectly, it even
blinks the cute orange led light. Opening the lid, it also wakes up very
reliably, I couldn't be happier. The only problem is that after waking up, the
cooling fan is either not running, or running at a very slow speed. Resulting in
the laptop considerably overheating, until the hardware protection circuit
forcefully powers off the laptop!
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
2.6.20-1.2925.fc6 (and all older fc6 kernel)
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Use pm-suspend (or KDE shutdown dialog) to suspend laptop to ram
2.Open the lid to have the laptop resume
3.Watch the laptop overheat (acpi -V), a CPU intensive app (createrepo?) causes
the laptop is hard power off
Fan running at min speed causing overheating
Fan running at max speed for cooling
