Question Wireless not working after suspend/hibernate


Hi guys, I just installed Suse 10 in my x41 tablet, and have several problems. One of the most annoying problem is that the wireless connection stop working after I suspended or hibernated the computer. The wireless icon thing shows an active connection, but when I tried to use firefox, it is not working.
The other problem is the keyboard/mouse problem. How do I configure the middle mouse buttton? Where do I configure the volume up/down/mute buttons?
Thanks a bunch in advance.

Try unloading & reloading the wireless modules - it works for USB.

Incidentally, you'll get better answers if you only ask one question per thread. The middle mouse button is usually a zaxismapping issue - it's been asked thousands of times, a quick search should find the specifics.

lsmod - shows you what modules are currently in use. You'll need to identify each module to know which does what

rmmod - unloads module

modprobe - reloads module

you can set sleep to automatically unload specific module before going to sleep and load just after (usually delay 2-10 sec depending on system). The problem is (in your case) that module is loaded but not "injected" into kernel space. Unloading before, and loading after will resolve your problem

I tried to unload and reload "wlan" module (with its dependencies) but still no luck.

How do I configure sleep so I can unload those modules before going to sleep and load after? Thank you.

/etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep

you will find there (among other things) two sections:
1) Suspend2RAM
there are listed defaull modules that will be unloaded and below you can add your own modules
2) Suspend2disk
see above

Thanks! Now I just have to figure out which module is controlling the wireless device/connection.

for X41 and Intel Wireless 2200BG module name will be ipw2200
run in the terminal window
#lsmod
to confirm the above and enter to the list of modules in /etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep

hey broch, i got it work on hibernate! Thanks..
but the suspend mode didn't work though even though I already configure the /etc/sysconfig/powersave/sleep.
Well maybe as for now, I'll just set it to hibernate when i close the lid.
