Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I won't swear that the i915 module is unloaded on suspend, but it looks as if maybe that's the case. If indeed it is, then that means it's reloaded on resume, which would make the above modprobe config useful for you.
Yeah, thinko on my part. I had in my head that the "video" parameter went with the i915 module, but it doesn't. I think this is worth mentioning to the kernel drm folks - seems like this should work as you expect without restarting X.
Me too. I got so focused on associating the "video" parameter with "i915" that the distinction did not dawn on me for a while.
A modestly annoying quirk because I prefer to boot into run level 3. I have the lid and Fn-F4 mapped to sleep. Invoking either without logging in or starting X triggers the quirk. Nothing crashes but a classic example of a "paper cut."
I never liked the way KMS uses absurdly tiny fonts. Too much web design and software development is performed on monitors as big as a TV and seldom tested on basic monitors.
