Description Noel J. Bergman 2008-10-29 09:29:04 EDT
Description of problem:

Suspend works.  Resume works with the following reproducible caveats:

  1) I have to resume 3 times.  The first two attempts begin to wake, and then immediately go back to sleep.  The third time stays awake.  It does not appear to matter if the wake is caused by opening the lid, hitting the Fn key or hitting the power key.

  2) The gnome password dialog accepts credentials, but hangs.  Again, this is reproducible.  I have to switch to a console, kill (-HUP is sufficient) the dialog, switch back to the X11 screen, and the re-issued dialog works fine.

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

Fedora 10, all daily updates installed.  nVidia 177.80 native driver installed and working properly.

How reproducible:

You tell me what would be helpful, since this has been easily reproducible.

if you're using the nvidia binary driver, there's nothing we can do to help. You'll need to report the bug to nvidia.

If one is not using the nvidia driver, suspend/resume doesn't work at all, since your "supported" open source drivers are broken and do not support suspend and resume.

> there's nothing we can do to help.

There is a difference between cannot and will not.  You can communicate with nvidia, just as Canonical does.  You just *choose* not to do so.

Keep in mind that suspend and resume work fine with Ubuntu 8.10 using the same driver, so it does not appear that it is the driver to blame.
