Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 986801
Zenbook is not always suspending
Last modified: 2013-10-08 15:56:25 EDT
Description of problem:
The Asus Zenbook UX31A laptop indicates suspend mode by fading the power led on and off.
50% of the times when suspending the LCD switches off, the power led stays on and internal ventilator keeps running.
I need to hold the power button for a while to switch the Laptop off.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Previously I was running Fedora 18, which had the same issue after a while, which was the reason to check Fedora 19.
I'm sure the issue was not there after the initial installation of Fedora 18.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. open pull down user menu in the left upper corner
2. Hold 'Alt' key and click on Suspend.
Laptop does not seem to completely suspend.
The LCD switches off, the power led stays on and internal ventilator keeps running.
Power Led should be fading on and off and should not produce noise/heat anymore,
I googled for configuration information for Zenbooks on Linux.
I added "pcie_aspm=force drm.vblankoffdelay=1 i915.semaphores=1 nmi_watchdog=0" to the grub kernel line, but no difference.
*********** MASS BUG UPDATE **************
We apologize for the inconvenience. There is a large number of bugs to go through and several of them have gone stale. Due to this, we are doing a mass bug update across all of the Fedora 19 kernel bugs.
Fedora 19 has now been rebased to 3.11.1-200.fc19. Please test this kernel update and let us know if you issue has been resolved or if it is still present with the newer kernel.
If you experience different issues, please open a new bug report for those.
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.
Still the same problem using kernel-3.11.3-201.fc19.x86_64.
It looks like the suspend failure occurs every secodn suspend after a fresh reboot.
I would like to provide more information if I knew how to collect data during a problematic suspend sequence.
