when I tried pm-suspend the computer became unresponsive with a blue screen with fedora logo 3 out of 4 times. It worked properly once though.
When the computer becomes unresponsive the hard disk is spun down, but the status light on my laptop still remains in the active state.
Maybe kernel problem. Please try:
echo mem > /sys/power/state
It works perfectly fine. Both suspend and wake up operation is very fast and without problems.
I spot one problem, please try following experimental build:
Thank you. It solves the problem.

This bug seems to be "official" for trying to solve the wakes-up issue.
There is another bug for the same issue: 501380
Maybe one the bug may be close ?
Please have a look to the tests I've done:
Short: this new version of pm-utils (pm-utils-126.96.36.199-4.fc13) does not solve the problem wakes-up issue, in my particular case. But it is not worst...
I guess the problem may not be a wakes up issue, but rather a bad way to put the laptop in sleep mode (See Comment 30, link above)
This bug was caused by typo in pm-utils, which leads to usage of s3 quirk in cases in which it shouldn't be used and it caused problems with wakeups on some systems. The bug 501380 seems to be another story.
The pm-utils-188.8.131.52-4.fc13 is now in testing and waits for enough karma to be pushed into stable. Feel free to give it some positive karma at:
After that this bug will be auto-closed.
pm-utils-184.108.40.206-4.fc13 has been pushed to the Fedora 13 stable repository. If problems still persist, please make note of it in this bug report.
