It does not suspend


My Debian LXDE 64 bit does not suspend.

Since I can't do it using the gui (http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...55#post4623955) I have to use the command:
Code:
sudo pm-suspend
The screen goes black for a second and then I'm back to the desktop, as if nothing happened.

I'm very surprised because using Debian Testing XFCE I never experienced this problem...

Solved following this guide: http://wiki.lxde.org/en/Debian#Confi...2C_and_Suspend.

You have to:
1. Run this command as root: gpasswd -a user powerdev
2. Reboot

Now it suspends fine and with no errors.
