This request was evaluated by Red Hat Product Management for inclusion in a Red

The kernel doesn't initiate suspend requests - the only thing that does is gnome-power-manager, so reassigning there for the moment to try to get some idea of where the request is coming from.
Sounds odd. It's most likely g-p-m initiating the suspend, but without logs I can't be sure. Could you please do (as a user):
And then try to reproduce the problem. If it happens, can you attach the full logs to this bug please. Thanks.
Possibly a dupe of bug 591935
This issue has been proposed when we are only considering blocker
issues in the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. It has
been denied for the current Red Hat Enterprise Linux release.
** If you would still like this issue considered for the current
release, ask your support representative to file as a blocker on
your behalf. Otherwise ask that it be considered for the next
Red Hat Enterprise Linux release. **
Yes the bug 591935 has better description about the problem. This bug is duplicate of that bug.
If I kill gnome-power-manager the laptop does not go into suspend anymore when switching to terminal and back. If I run manually "gnome-power-manager --verbose" and switch back and forth it does not go into suspend anymore either.
This is still an issue with rhel 6 final. Pretty annoying one too. This bug is duplicate of bug 591935
Since RHEL 6.1 External Beta has begun, and this bug remains
unresolved, it has been rejected as it is not proposed as
exception or blocker.
Red Hat invites you to ask your support representative to
propose this request, if appropriate and relevant, in the
next release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
Seems to be fixed.
