Unable to Recover from Suspend
The Suspend function does not work for me as it should. One would expect that recovering from Suspend is accomplished by moving the mouse or pressing a key.
I have a super Fedora Core 6 system except for one bug-- recovering from Suspend. My Suspend works somewhat like a black hole-- once I enter the Suspended state, I am trapped. I can only get out of that state by hitting the Reset button--not a good practice.
When I click on Suspend, my display instantly goes blank and the CPU power is turned off. That's good. My system probably enters an S3 (suspend to RAM) state. Afterwards, I can't get out of the Suspended state. Pressing any keys or the power button does not awaken my system. Only the Reset button rescues me.
Here is some additional information:
- My Intel BIOS supports ACPI. Two states are available, S1 and S3. I use S3.
- apm service is off
- acpid service is enabled
- Linux command (in root) acpi results in "Command not found"
- Linux command (in root) acpid results in "Can't open /proc/acpi/event: Device or resource busy"
- haldaemon and messagebus are enabled
- chkconfig --list | grep acpid results in
0-off 1-off 2-off 3-on 4-on 5-on 6-off
- latest kernel, 2.6.18
- had the same Suspend problem with FC5 and the same kernel
Any wisdom will be appreciated.
