Hibernate Does Not Work
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:54:20 EST
Description of problem:
The System->Shutdown->Hibernate feature does not work. The screen goes black
showing nothing but a blinking cursor, then the login prompt reappears. Logging
back in shows my original desktop.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In Gnome, click System->Shutdown->Hibernate
Computer should persist memory to disk then shutdown.
User just gets a black screen, then bounced back to their desktop.
# uname -r
Created attachment 292575 [details]
Output of dmesg > dmesg.out right after attempt to hibernate.
Not a gnome-power-manager problem. Please see
http://people.freedesktop.org/~hughsient/quirk/ for a possible fix.
This is an immensely rude and frustrating reply. Is this what Fedora's been
reduced to? Pressing "hibernate" doesn't hibernate and that's not a bug?! This
is a problem in every release since GPM became standard, and hibernation has
rarely, if ever worked, and replies like these aren't helping. If it's not a GPM
problem, then it's certainly a problem somewhere. I've reviewed that hal-quirks
site, and it doesn't address hibernation problems at all.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 8 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 8. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 '8'.
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 8'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 8 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:
Fedora 8 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2009-01-07. Fedora 8 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
