Am running gentoo on my Toshiba M30-742 laptop. The kernel is 2.6.14 (gentoo sources). I am trying to make acpi-suspend (not swsusp or suspend-to-disk) work.
echo "mem" > /sys/power/state
The system suspends fine. I can see the front LED flashing. Now when I try to resume it. Either by pressing the power button or by closing and opening the lid, the resume process starts fine. I can say that since it appears to be working (lot of disk activity and LEDs light up). At the point when it should show me the display, it reboots. Please note that during whole of this resume process, the screen remains switched off (yes! not even the backlight is on. Its off.)
I tried this after unloading nvidia, agpgart and USB modules. I have not configured anything in the /etc/acpi directory for lid close or power button events.
Would appreciate all the tips, tricks and pointers.
Thanks a lot!
