Description Bill Nottingham 2008-01-08 21:05:15 UTC
Description of problem:

IBM T60, Intel video.

Suspend goes through the motions, switches to text mode with a blinking cursor,
and then stops.

The 'I'm suspended' BIOS beep sounds, however, the blinking cursor is still on,
the LCD light is still on, and the 'moon' suspend LED is blinking. The laptop
still runs drawing normal power.

It can not be brought out of this mode.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


at least. Haven't traced back when the last time it worked was.

Oddly enough, turning off DRI fixes it. May be related to bug 428043.

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2008-05-14 04:20:57 UTC
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.

Comment 3 Bug Zapper 2009-06-09 23:21:33 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 9 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 9.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '9'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 9's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 9 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here:
