Description Gérard Milmeister 2002-03-31 16:17:55 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 Galeon/1.2.0 (X11; Linux i686; U;) Gecko/20020308

Description of problem:

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

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
After 2:
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.

Additional info:

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
the product. Please upgrade to the latest version and open a new bug if the problem

The Fedora Legacy project (http://fedoralegacy.org/) maintains some older releases, 
and if you believe this bug is interesting to them, please report the problem in
the bug tracker at: http://bugzilla.fedora.us/
