Suspend doesn't always resume with fedora15


I have a fedora15 x86_64 install on an AMD Phenom system and doesn't always resume from suspend. I have no idea how to troubleshoot this or any idea why this would be happening. What can be done to fix this?

When pressing the power button to resume, the computer powers on but is unresponsive. No display, USB mouse doesn't illuminate, can't access it remotely. It's just lights on, no one home.

I've included a few details about my system below.

# /var/log/pm-suspend.log shows nothing particularly indicative of a problem

# lspci -v info showing motherboard info (Asus Crosshair IV Formula)

# This is processor 6 as an example

Is there something that specifically I should investigate with the BIOS configuration?

How large is your swap file? It should be double your amount of ram at the very least.

Mention the specifics of your HDD and RAM. Fedora may be wanting more RAM. In that case try to upgrade it or specify the swap partition. Check this link
