Description of problem:
When I issue a an 'apm -s' in this machine with the recent NVIDIA drivers the
machine won't enter suspend mode. Everything will blank, but it won't sleep.
If I'm lucky the machine will eventually come back but the X session will be
reset to the gdm prompt menu.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.issue apm -s
Actual Results: screen blanks but machine is still on.
Expected Results: screen should blank, I should get the little sleep beep,
and then the machine should power down to sleep.
I have another Dell laptop (CPx) with sleep problems. See bug 63316
Does this work without the nvidia drivers being loaded (not even loaded and then
When I use the generic VESA driver, suspend works fine. It turns out the the
Dell uses a Gforce 2Go which doesn't work with the standard XFree NVIDIA
drivers. The latest GForce driver from NVIDIA works, but doesn't suspend properly.
If this is an NVIDIA problem do I report it to them or will RedHat pass it on?
You'll need to go to nvidia with this; we can't support nvidia since we don't
have their source; they do have our source though.
