I upgraded my dell inspiron 7000 laptop from rh 6.0 to rh 6.1. The laptop
consistently locks up when it goes into sleep mode (i.e. when I close the
laptop). The only way to reboot is to unplug the power and remove the
battery. This did NOT happen under rh 6.0.

I have additional information on bug# 7747 (dell inspiron 7000 sleep crash for rh
6.1). The laptop locks up when it goes into sleep mode ONLY when X-Windows is
running. It does NOT lock up when running in text mode. Please note that the
laptop did NOT lock up when going into sleep mode while X-Windows was running
under RedHat 6.0. I have also found that the laptop locks up in X-Windows when
switching from LCD to CRT display. It does NOT lock up when switching from LCD to
CRT in text mode. Please note that when the laptop locks up, the only way to
reboot is to unplug the power and remove the battery. ctrl-alt-bs does not work.
