Description of problem:
I just laid hands on an IBM ThinkPad T40.  About half the time I suspend it from
Linux, when I resume, it locks up.  Sometimes I see X-Windows but I am unable to
type or interact with it in any way.  Some times the screen backlight turns on
but nothing is displayed.  In either case, it does not respond to
Crtl-Alt-Backspace or Ctrl-Alt-Delete.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start X-Windows
2. Open Terminal
3. su root
4. apm -s
5. Close laptop
6. Open laptop
7. Laptop attempts to resume
Actual results:
either backlight turns on but nothing is displayed, or X-Windows desktop appears
but I am unable to interact with it.

Expected results:
System is usable

Is screen blanking turned on in the BIOS? Try turning it off, if so.

Comment 2 ammulder 2003-05-19 12:04:50 UTC
Actually, the problem seemed to be resolved by unloading the sound driver during
suspend and reloading during resume.  The flag for this in /etc/sysconfig/apmd
worked for this except the sound driver (i810_audio) needed to be added to the
list of sound modules.

On a related note, I have noticed that screen blanking causes terminal problems
with the Red Hat 9 installer (once blanked, it never wakes up again), but I
guess that's a different issue.

Comment 3 Bill Nottingham 2003-05-19 20:26:21 UTC
Oh, *YUK*. A hardcoded list of sound modules? That's so broken.

Fixed better in 3.0.2-19.
