This is the solution too for HP Probook 4515 - with RS 880 Azalia (STALC96xx chip) - and hopefully for many ALC chip. So I confirm that works!

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2011-06-01 12:21:11 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 13 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 13.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '13'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 13's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 13 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 3 Electron 2011-06-02 10:01:00 UTC
For me, the workaround is no longer necessary with Fedora 15 and the same hardware.
I have not tried the F14 with the latest update.
I think we can close the bug, right?

Comment 4 Electron 2011-06-04 11:15:35 UTC
Sorry, I still have to apply the workaround after cold reboot :-(

Comment 5 Josh Boyer 2012-06-04 15:20:17 UTC
Are you still seeing this with the 2.6.43/3.3 kernel update in F15/F16?

Comment 6 Electron 2012-06-14 21:14:29 UTC
I tried Fedora 17 with kernel 3.3.7-1.fc17.x86_64 and 3.4.0-1.fc17.x86_64. The workaround seems unnecessary now (same hardware of course).
No objections to closing the bug for me :-)
