Originally posted by Jerrac I have a Sony Vaio FRV37 Laptop and have been trying to convert over to linux on it. The only thing that I have not been able to get working properly is Suspend/Hibernation.
Has anyone gotten a Sony FRV series laptop to suspend or hibernate with recent kernels?
Did you check the site Linux On Laptops which I have a link for in my signature?
Many people tell their Linux install success story so other people can benefit from the installs at that site.
Jerrac states ubuntu is elite for FRV37 Sony VAIO laptops.
Lol, that was me. And ubuntu is the best distro I have tried so far. But suspend and hibernation won't work in it with the latest release. I think on the Hoary RC hibernation worked somewhat.... Can't remember for sure....
