Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 436633
Sleep no longer available (in Gnome GUI) in 188.8.131.52-12
Last modified: 2008-04-11 01:03:53 EDT
Description of problem:
When logged into Gnome, the Gnome System menu has a "Shutdown" option, which
displays a dialog box showing options suspend/hibernate/restart/cancel/shutdown.
When running kernel 184.108.40.206-12.fc8.i686, the suspend button is hidden (and
whatsmore, in an ugly way that leaves a weird-sized gap instead of filling the
space with the remaining buttons)
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Always (tried a couple times only)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Boot into said kernel
2. Log into Gnome
3. System -> Shutdown
4. Look at the dialog box
No suspend button
Should see a suspend button.
Booting back into kernel-220.127.116.11-137.fc8.i686 solves the issue.
Personally, I never actually use suspend, so it's not a big deal for me.
However, I assume lots of other people do...
Hardware: Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop.
A fresh reboot appears to solve the issue; the menu item is there again. Maybe
this is intermittent. Perhaps the bluetooth problems I was having screwed
I haven't seen this in a while. I guess it was some intermittent glitch. I'll
close the bug.
