Description Matthew Truch 2010-11-08 20:01:28 UTC
Description of problem:
After resuming from a hibernate, the menu system no longer allows hibernate or suspend.  I'm not sure if this is a gnome menu options problem, or if it's deeper, so I'm filing it here (apologies if this is incorrect).  

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 14, all updates applied.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Hibernate computer.
2. Resume from hibernate.
3. Attempt to hibernate or suspend.
Actual results:
There is no longer a menu option to hibernate or suspend.

Expected results:
The hibernate and suspend options are still there.

I'm suffering from the same thing. Pretty annoying.

I've a hypothesis that this is permissions-related, because I've also seen the following:

 - auto-mounting USB memory stick fails with 'not authorized'
 - sound ceases to work, e.g. xmms says 'alsa_get_mixer(): Attaching to mixer hw:0 failed: Permission denied'
 - some preferences settings report permission errors

Same thing here: Samsung NC10 with a fresh Fedora 14 installation. I've googled it out and look:

later in that thread they suggest it's a ConsoleKit problem (check ck-list-sessions, it says the session is inactive [active = FALSE]). A quick switch to Console and back to X11 seems to resolve the issue. (ALT+CTRL+F2 and ALT+CTRL+F1). Very annoying, though.

I suggest increasing the priority to at least Medium.

That fits.  /var/log/ConsoleKit/history contains the following line logged during resume from hibernation:

1290069921.132 type=SEAT_ACTIVE_SESSION_CHANGED : seat-id='Seat1' session-id=''
