Laptop suspends twice every time
Last modified: 2009-07-12 09:27:07 EDT
Description of problem:
Laptop suspends twice when pressing suspend button
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Virtually every time the suspend button is pressed on the keyboard.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Press suspend button on keyboard. Wait for laptop to suspend.
2. Press power button to wake laptop back up.
Laptop suspends again
Laptop should be awake after the 1st waking up.
I am not sure if this is due to the kernel or gnome-power-manager. This referenced bug over at launchpad (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-power-manager/+bug/261084) has it filed under gnome-power-manager, so I kept it consistent here too. Apparently if you suspend using the suspend button it suspends twice, however if you click "suspend" from the gnome-power-manager applet it works normally. The referenced bug at launchpad has been marked as fixed however Ubuntu users are still reporting that the issue persists. I myself have noticed this issue on Fedora 10 with an HP Pavilion dv1657cl and a DELL Latitude D520 both on Intel x86 CPUs.
