 Fedora 17

How reproducible:

 Every Time

Steps to Reproduce:

Additional info:

  Bug may be common with bug 795511 (same bug as in Fedora 16)
Comment 1 yerazunis 2012-06-01 15:45:46 EDT
Additional info:

Ubuntu 12.04 LTS liveCD - does not unsuspend correctly.

Fedora 17 LXDE liveCD spin - Functions correctly!
Comment 2 yerazunis 2012-06-02 01:43:23 EDT
Cancel the added comment that LXDE liveCD works.  

In fact, it never suspends at all (which may be an entirely different issue),
but it's not a fix.  The backlight remains on and the CPU keeps running, not
hibernating, and power use remains high.

I regret the false information.
Comment 3 Frederic Riss 2012-06-18 02:45:24 EDT
I confirm that I see the same behavior, with the additional symptom that after a few seconds with a black screen, the system reboots.
Comment 4 Frederic Riss 2012-07-01 04:12:10 EDT
Just to point out that I upgraded the kernel to 3.4.4-3.fc17.x86_64 and it didn't change anything. The screen still doesn't come back after suspend. 

Any additional data needed ?
Comment 5 Frederic Riss 2012-07-04 14:42:27 EDT
This must be related to nouveau. Installing the nvidia binary blob from rpmfusion gives me working suspend. Shall we reassign the bug?
Comment 6 yerazunis 2012-07-04 19:39:32 EDT
We've had conflicting reports as to whether the bug is in nouveau itself or in
the kernel (I originally reported it as a nouveau bug back at F15, and it's 
bounced back and forth for a while now.)  

I'd really rather have it fixed than just reassigning it one more time; that's
boring and doesn't actually fix the bug.

Comment 7 Josh Boyer 2012-07-10 12:40:40 EDT
Please try the 3.4.4-5 kernel.  It has a nouveau suspend fix.

If that still fails, please try some of the tips located here to narrow down which driver may be causing the issue:

Comment 8 Roman Melihhov 2012-07-13 10:32:58 EDT
AMD x86_64 fedora17 same thing, after 2 or 3 most recent kernel updates. All worked with initial kernel installation  does not with the latest.
Comment 9 Roman Melihhov 2012-07-13 10:35:04 EDT
Kernel Linux 3.4.4-5.fc17.x86_64

GNOME 3.4.2

CPU: AMD Phenom(tm) II X4 965 Processor × 4

system does not suspend, fan is running but screen goes black (and remains black).

Comment 11 Josh Boyer 2013-03-14 14:25:30 EDT
Is this still happening with 3.8.2 in updates-testing?
Comment 12 Josh Boyer 2013-03-28 09:55:21 EDT
This bug is being closed with INSUFFICIENT_DATA as there has not been a
response in 2 weeks.  If you are still experiencing this issue,
please reopen and attach the relevant data from the latest kernel you are
running and any data that might have been requested previously.
