Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 468134
configured to suspend, but it shuts down - g-p-m or vbetool segfault?
Last modified: 2008-10-23 03:00:40 EDT
My laptop is configured to suspend when idle.
After going to lunch and coming back, the power light was flashing. Keyboard and mouse presses did nothing.
I pressed the power key once, and it started a clean boot, suggesting it had either shutdown or crashed instead of suspending cleanly.
The last line in /var/log/messages from before the restart is
Oct 23 14:08:34 laptop kernel: vbetool: segfault at 244d ip 0806fa87 sp bffa6040 error 4 in vbetool[8047000+45000]
/var/log/pm-suspend.log looks interesting. Other files like /var/log/dmesg.old look too old to contain anything directly relevant.
Initial commandline parameters: --quirk-vbestate-restore --quirk-vbe-post

It happened a second time.
In this case, I pressing a key on the inbuilt keyboard caused a couple of other lights to light up and the power light to go solid, suggesting it was trying to wake up, but the screen stayed blank.
That sounds a whole lot like bug 414971. (I thought I was using the nvidia driver, but it turns out it recently got changed to nv.)
Going to assume it's a dupe.
