Thanks for the links.

The patch referenced there is queued up to be included in the 3.3.8 and 3.4.1 stable kernel releases.  F17 will pick up one of those shortly.  Your testing feedback when they are built would be much appreciated.

Comment 3 Aram Agajanian 2012-06-11 04:06:18 UTC
Fedora 17 has been installed on my netbook.  Suspend and resume are working fine on my netbook with kernel-3.4.0-1.fc17.i686.rpm.

Thank you for letting us know.

Same error here, upgraded to 3.4.0-1 kernel but resume still fails with a black screen and computer not responding (not even CAP LOCK key).
Any way to debug?

Thanks!

I encountered a similar problem this evening on my netbook.  I just filed bug 831462.
