Toshiba M9 Laptop crashes when lid is closed or power state changes on Fedora 10
Last modified: 2009-09-06 05:24:53 EDT
Description of problem:
Toshiba Tecra M9 PTM91E crashes when laptop lid is closed or the power state changes. This happens with every kernel version installed so far, and all upgrades. I have set power management to do nothing when the lid is closed but this does not fix it. Shutting down acpid does nothing. When the lid is closed or I plug or unplug the external power the system becomes completely non-responsive; control-alt-f[1..8] doesn't work, neither does control-alt-esc or control-alt-del. The only solution is to shut down and restart using the power button.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
this has happened on Fedora 10 kernels:
126.96.36.199-134.fc10.x86_64, 188.8.131.52-159.fc10.x86_64, 184.108.40.206-170.2.5.fc10.x86_64, 220.127.116.11-170.2.56.fc10.x86_64
every time. Sometimes the screen blanks, sometimes the pointer remains on a black screen, sometimes the background is still visible, but in each case it's just as dead.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. close lid
2. open lid with trepidation
I can still SSH onto the system so I know that it's not a total crash. If I killall -9 Xorg X restarts and I can re-login.
from the /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
EQ Overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop!
