ThinkPad T60 Suspend


I've been having trouble for a very long time trying to get suspend to work on my ThinkPad T60 running Debian Lenny on a custom 2.6.22.6 kernel. I have acpi built in and I can't seem to figure out what the problem is. I looked around on Google and found that I could use "s2ram" but when I do that I get /proc/sys/kernel/acpi_video_flags does not exist; you need a kernel >=2.6.16. switching back to vt7. What could be the problem? This is the only feature that does not work.

Hi

I dont think this is the answer you are looking for but, on my Thinkpad T40, I had to set the suspend on the lid being closed. System/ Preferences/ Power Management. then select
suspend or hibernate when lid is closed. your is probably differnet since Im running Ubuntu 7.1. the suspend or hibernate did not work till I set them under power management.

I dont know if it is the suspend to ram that you are talking about, but it seems to work on mine.

In my Power Management settings I just have "Blank Screen" and "Do Nothing." I currently have it set to Blank Screen but I wish it would suspend.

when I first installed Ubuntu that was all mine said also. after several updates
it changed to offering suspend and hibernate. maybe that is an option for you as well??

thats all I can suggest
sorry
