Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 248412
Closing laptop lid only suspends every second try
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:51:31 EST
Description of problem:
On my Thinkpad T41, attempting to suspend by closing the lid only works on
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set preferences to suspend when lid is closed (on battery and on A/C).
2. Close lid.
3. Open lid.
4. Close lid.
5. Open lid.
6. Close lid.
Laptop suspends on every second lid close.
Laptop suspends on every lid close.
I'm seeing this on my X41. Resetting severity since this has become fairly
serious for me... if I close my lid and walk away for a few hours, half the time
I come back I almost burn myself picking up my laptop, because I keep forgetting
about this damn bug. It's also a regression.
CCing Richard. I believe he has this fixed in svn.
No, this is a kernel bug. I've sent a patch to LKML and acpi-devel a few times.
I'll cc you both.
Now fixed in F9?
Seems to be working in F8, in fact. Will re-open if it pops up again in F9.
