No Standby Recovery on Dell Laptop_FC3


Running FC3 on Dell Inspiron 8100 Laptop, Geforce2.

When I reopen my laptop the screen never recovers from standby, it just stays dead. The only way to recover is to manually power off and restart.

Is this a driver problem? Or something else I'm not thinking of?

Thanks for any help.

yes, software suspend is a little iffy on Linux still. Works sometimes, sometimes not. Only took Microsoft 20 years to get it to work properly. XP is the first one they had that software suspend will work reliably. Linux is not quite there yet. Stay tuned and wait for another kernel version or so. I'm sure that we'll get there.

I found out the same issue, and I have a bit of a more complex problem....

I'm running tha latest stable Mepis and I set the computer to go into Standby when the lid latch is triggered(laptop closed), instead when I hit apply it just automatically went into standby with my laptop open. Now everytime I log into root it goes into standby while loading KDE. Is there any way around this so I can actually have admin access to my laptop? ;-D

You should not be running KDE as root. Run KDE as user. If you need root privleges for a file then open konqueror as root, or open the config file as root.

You can open a konsole or xterm and su to root and then open konqueror,
Code:
su
Code:
password
Code:
konqueror
or you can click the KDE menu, then run, then enter konqueror. You will then be prompted for roots password.

I don't know about your machine suspending immediately.
