figure fails to suspend the system

Actual results:
Nothing happens.

System should suspend.

Comment 1 Larry Troan 2007-12-13 20:11:07 UTC
Required to certify systems.

Comment 2 Rezwanul Kabir 2008-01-30 04:08:19 UTC
This issue needs to be fixed in RHEL5.2. Dell systems were blocked from 
getting RHEL5.1 certification due to this bug, so we would like to see more 
attention given to this bug.

Comment 3 John Feeney 2008-02-01 19:37:49 UTC
After some discussion, it appears as though this should be re-assigned 
because it is not a kernel problem.

Comment 4 Rezwanul Kabir 2008-02-13 19:02:42 UTC
This feature is to map the "suspend" key in M4300/M6300. Needs urgent 
attention for inclusion in RHEL5.2.

Comment 7 John Feeney 2008-04-22 19:34:49 UTC
bz442623 was opened to track the addition of quirks for keymaps in HAL so
this bugzilla will have to wait for that bugzilla's resolution. This bugzilla 
(bz424021) will track any M4300/M6300 specific changes required once the 
plumbing provided by 442623 is in place. As you will note, bz424021 has been
marked dependent upon bz442623.

Comment 9 John Feeney 2008-08-19 21:11:54 UTC
Since no kernel changes appear to be required to enable this functionality,
I am closing this (kernel-related) bugzilla.
