Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 25554
long suspends mess up display
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:31:03 EDT
When I suspend my laptop for short periods, it's fine. If I suspend for
several hours, the following happens:
A region of the display is moved from near the bottom to the top of the
display. The region is 1" high and runs the width of the display. Usually
for me it contains a chunk of a gnome-terminal, but not always.
Keyboard input goes to the window under the mouse (I have pointer focus),
even if it is being displayed elsewhere.
Other items on the screen are "shadows of themselves". Essentially, all
the window backgrounds appear. Occasionally cursor outlines appear, but
never text. They never change, even if the window is typed in or exited
from. They stay on screen even if switching to another desktop.
This all happens even if I turn CHANGEVT=7 on in /etc/sysconfig/apmd
(changes vt to 1 before suspend, back after).
This is on a Toshiba Tecra 8000, RH7.0, XF86 4.0.1 as released and updated.
What video hardware does it have in it?
Also, please attach all of the following:
Your XF86Config-4 and your X server logs from after an incident occurs.
Give as much info as possible.

This problem completely went away when I updated to sawfish-0.36-2.
Since that might just mean that it's a server bug that's no longer being
tickled, here's the requested info:
Neomagic NM2200 rev 18
Output of lspci -v and lspci -vn is attached, as is my XF86config-4 file.
Server logs I can't do, as it's been a while since I reported or had this
I'm marking this WORKAROUND, since it looks like a server bug (should the window
manager be *able* to leave the display in this condition) and I haven't changed
server packages. If you feel differently, feel free to change the status as
