Won't come out of Suspend Mode...


I am trying to setup my laptop (Dell Inspiron 700m) to go into suspend to ram mode, via the helper app in KDE's Control Center. However, when my laptop goes into suspend mode its gets stuck there. I can't seem to "wake" it up. Only the power light flashes. If I hit the power button or the lid button the laptop shuts off and I need to boot it up again (all other keys have no effect nor does the mouse do anything). I am using Slackware 10.1 with a custom kernel (2.6.12.5) and KDE 3.4.

Thanks.

Well, you won't believe but I think chances are 2 against 1 that your Inspiron wakes up, just doesn't open eyes. I hope you have DPMS enabled in xorg.conf . So try opening an xterm and setting smth like "while true; do sleep 1; xset dpms force on; done" before suspending. If it will help - you have just to find out way to run xset automatically in proper moment. If not - Section Monitor in xorg.conf, 'Option "DPMS" "on"' . If doesn't work even after that - I'm sorry, I just know what is the situation with I2200..
