Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 505746
System hangs on resume from hibernation
Last modified: 2009-12-06 11:38:41 EST
ON resume from hibernation, I get the GDM login, but it's just a gray rectangle with a white field in the middle. Cannot type into it and it doesn't respond to keyboards. Using SSH, accessed the system and found Xorg running at 100%. Killing Xorg allow access to system (with loss of saved session, of course).
