Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 6429
Laptop no longer (reliably) suspends after inactivity
Last modified: 2008-05-01 11:37:52 EDT
My laptop (a Gateway Solo 2500) previously went into suspend
mode after the appropriate period of inactivity. Now it no
longer does so. It's a little hard to figure out exactly
the parameters of the problem. I do know that:
1. Since upgrading to 6.1, I've NEVER seen it suspend from
2. It _sometimes_ suspends when not in X. However, it also
sometimes is unable to suspend when not in X. I'm not sure
what the issue is, but I can't pin it on any particular
process. Playing sound prevents suspension, but the problem
persists when no sound-oriented processes are running.
Previously I was running Mandrake 6.0. Under Mandrake, the
machine suspended without problem.
This should be fixed now.
