Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 245088
Laptop fails to recover from hibernate or suspend
Last modified: 2015-01-04 17:29:50 EST
Description of problem:
I am running kde 3.5.6 with kernel-2.6.21-1.3194.fc7 and kpowersave 0.7-2.
When I run 'Suspend to Disk' or 'Suspend to RAM' both hibernating and
suspending initiate. However, when I try to resume from 'Suspend to Disk',
the kernel boots and brings me to a blank screen with a blinking cursor. It
fails to resume and requires me to hold down the power button to restart.
When I try to resume from 'Suspend to Disk', my lights on my laptop flicker
and my laptop appears to freeze and requires a hard shutdown to restart. I
expect both 'Suspend to RAM' and 'Suspend to Disk' to bring me to a kde prompt
requiring my password. This is always reproducible.
My laptop is a lenovo 3000 n100.
Using the following developmental kernel ... Fedora (2.6.23-0.15.rc0.git1.fc8)
from http://people.redhat.com/~davej/ allows my laptop to properly
suspend/hibernate. However, this is not a viable option for everyday use as
several modules fail (as expected) rendering my system worse off then with the
stock F7 kernel.
I'm reviewing this bug as part of the kernel bug triage project, an attempt to
isolate current bugs in the fedora kernel.
I am CC'ing myself to this bug and will try and assist you in resolving it if I can.
There hasn't been much activity on this bug for a while. Could you tell me if
you are still having problems with the latest kernel as you have indicated this
may be resolved.
If the problem no longer exists then please close this bug or I'll do so in a
few days if there is no additional information lodged.
This bug has been fixed in kernel 2.6.22 currently in F7.
