suspend-to-* on thinkpad X121/Amd E450, Radeon HD 6320


Hi guys,

anyone got suspend on this box working? I have ubuntu 11.10 64bit and have tried both open-source radeon and fglrx (11.11) drivers. I use 3.2.1 kernel (custom compiled). There are claims of people who can suspend a computer with similar chipset but haven't yet seen anyone talking about X121.

Suspend-to-ram seemed to work with radeon drivers, and sometimes the system was also able to wake up. With fglrx it seems to hang before falling asleep. /var/log/pm-suspend seems not too informative, I may post it here. Would be happy to compile a new kernel/play around with boot options.

Otherwise, both radeon and fglrx drivers work well.

Edit: relevant part from /var/log/pm-suspend.log

So, I have still not found any solution. Just tried 's2ram -f' with following options:

-a 1
-a 2
-a 3
-p -s
-s
-p
-a 1 -s
-m
-r
-r -m
-v -s

I also added "vga=0" to boot options.

No effect. The computer seems to sleep well (the led starts it's slow macish blink), but it never recovers from sleep (I cannot hear sound when pressing vol+/vol- buttons).

I am going to try Catalyst driver now.

Anyone has better experience?

Compiled the new fglrx driver (Catalyst 12.10, module version 9.0.2). No improvement. However, a previous version (downloaded from ubuntu repo) could not even fall asleep. The new one falls well, but cannot wake up, exactly as with radeon driver.
