Netbook with GMA 500 GPU sometimes freezes on resume
Last modified: 2013-08-01 13:20:50 EDT
Description of problem:
I have a netbook with a GMA 500 GPU. Sometimes, when resuming from suspend, the computer freezes. The display doesn't wake up. The only way that I could think of to get the computer to respond was to hold the power button down for five sections and then restart it.
Other times, the computer will resume from suspend without any problems.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
I don't know how to reproduce this problem.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Suspend the computer.
2. Press the power button.
The computer never resumes operation. The display doesn't light up.
The display should light up and the computer should resume operation.
The two times that the netbook has frozen on resume, the computer had been suspended for at least 40 minutes.
I'm planning to look at some of the web pages reference in http://ask.fedoraproject.org/question/1725/suspend-fails for help in troubleshooting this problem.
Is this still an issue with 3.6.9?
My netbook still sometimes freezes on resume with a 3.6.9 kernel. My first impression after upgrading was that there has been an improvement. The netbook has successfully resumed from a suspend state quite a few times. However, there has also been two freezes so far.
This message is a reminder that Fedora 17 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 17. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora
'version' of '17'.
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 17 is end of life. If you
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it
against a later version of Fedora, you are encouraged change the
'version' to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 17's end of life.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 17 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2013-07-30. Fedora 17 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
