Description of problem:
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend using Fn key or closing the lid
2. Open the lid
Actual Results: After 1:
Sometimes the computer does poweroff, sometimes it only blanks
the screen but does not poweroff
Sometimes nothing happens at all, sometimes textmode screen is shown complete
with previous content, but doesn't respond anymore.
Expected Results: Awakening the computer should return it completely functionable.
Dell Inspiron 3800
Kernel 2.4.7 or 2.4.9 or 2.4.18
RedHat 6.2 worked fine.
I guess that on suspend the kernel sometimes crashes and sometimes
crashes on reawakening.
Another BIOS blacklist candidate...
Thanks for the bug report. However, Red Hat no longer maintains this version of
