need help with suspend/waking up - pm-utils and acpid
OK I've decided that I need to start conserving my system and learning power management tips and tricks. I decided to start with suspending and hibernating. I was pleased to see that slackware 12.2 already includes the basic tools to do this with pm-untils and some other things that help with the process. Hibernating and resuming working just fine after configuring initrd and lilo.conf to resume from the swap partition. However, I seem to be missing something on the suspend to ram end. I appear to suspend to ram (as far as I can tell) with no problem. But I can't figure out how to wake the system up. are there other things I need to configure?
I have tried:
running pm-suspend by it self
editing /etc/acpi/acpi-handler.sh to make the power button run pm-suspend instead of shut down
ensured the pm-is-supported states that hibernate and suspend are supported (suspend-hybrid is not)
I have an ASUS M2N-SLI Delux motherboard )nForce 570 SLI MCP and one GeForce 7600 GT video card.
Can anybody point me to a good tutorial or experiences on their use of pm-suspend?
I almost wonder if something is turned off in my bios. Under the APM section wake on PCI was off and and saw that "power-on" keyboad and mouse were off. I enabled "power-on" for keyboard Ctrl-Esc. for ACPI, it was set to S1&S3 and enabled.
