X Lockups after halting a laptop "suspend" command
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:51 EDT
To whom it may concern,
Many users (and myself) have noticed that the X server locks
up after halting the suspend feature on our notebooks.
Also, upon restoring the screen, the video is scrambled --
as if the video card could not update correctly. Ideas?

suspending and X are a tricky mixture. On many chipsets, it simply
doesn't work. Our suggestion is to switch to a text console before
putting the notebook to sleep, and then switch back to X when you wake
the notebook up.
We are not sure when a fix for this can be discovered, as it is a
intricate mixture of Driver, X, and kernel issues.
