Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 858798
Suspend to ram hangs after a second monitor was plugged in.
Last modified: 2013-09-03 08:24:24 EDT
Description of problem:
Suspend to ram does not work after a second monitor was plugged in.
How reproducible: always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in an external monitor and wait until monitor switch has been completed.
2. Switch back by removing the external monitor.
3. Suspend to ram by closing the lid.
4. Wake-up computer by opening the lid.
A flickering tty with a message on
invalid ROM contents. No Xserver. I have to switch to another tty, login and reboot.
This has been happening throughout all kernel updates for Fedora 17.
My computer is a MacBook Pro 6,2, booting in efi modus and using the
nouveau driver for a nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 330M]
This is a dual graphic card having an intel chip as well:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 18) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GT216 [GeForce GT 330M] (rev a2) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
Without plugging in external monitors, suspend to ram works reliably.
Are you still seeing this with 3.7.9 or 3.8.2 in updates-testing?
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.
I have this same issue with F18, 3.9.11-200.fc18.x86_64. Same machine (MacBookProx 6,2). Though I'd change the title to "Suspend to ram hangs after a second monitor is removed." That is, as long as a second monitor is used, suspend to ram works ok. It's removing it that causes the problem.
