suspend issue
i have a gateway mx6030, and a dual boot system set up with win7 and slackware13. i went with the kde desktop. it has a sleep option(and suspend to RAM, but it seems to be mostly the same thing) my laptop is definitely capable of sleep mode. the issue is that when i wake up my laptop the mouse pad stops working, until i restart the system.
i figure whatever script or config file handling the hardware wakeup is skipping over the track pad. anyone know where i can find these files? or, if i'm completely off, what the problem actually is?
any help would be awesome, thanks.

You may need to remove the module from the kernel before suspending and then reinsert it after resuming.
Perhaps others on the forum could suggest which module that would be :-)

You could start by trying psmouse

modprobe -r psmouse


modprobe psmouse

not too complicated. any ideas on a way to automate this? maybe a pair of scripts containing those commands set to run on suspend and resume? getting to the command prompt gets a little tricky without the mouse.
i'll boot into slack, try those commands, and let you know how i goes.

just finish trying the modprobe -r/moprobe solution. no go, it still has the same behavior.

I have problems with the usb sub system on my notebook, so I hibernate it with the following script:


sudo modprobe -r ohci_hcd && sudo modprobe -r ehci_hcd && sudo s2disk \
&& sudo modprobe ohci_hcd && sudo modprobe ehci_hcd

No need to explicitly run anything on resume, because the script picks up from where it left off.

Note, that I suspend to disk not ram. Suspending to ram works... but resuming does not ;-)
