Description Stephen Warren 2008-03-08 13:29:52 EST
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 2.6.24.3-12.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):

kernel-2.6.24.3-12.fc8.i686

How reproducible:
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
  
Actual results:

No suspend button

Expected results:

Should see a suspend button.

Additional info:

Booting back into kernel-2.6.23.15-137.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
something up?

I haven't seen this in a while. I guess it was some intermittent glitch. I'll
close the bug.
