Suspend to ram (worked only once)

Hi everyone,

I am a new user of Slackware 13.37 (KDE) on my laptop. Unfortunately, suspend to ram is not working properly. It worked the very first time I tried it, but has failed since. The computer suspend properly (light turns orange) but when I click any button it restarts computer and recovers journals. Any ideas on what may be causing this?

hi, You mean the first time it worked with resume? please post your kernel version ("uname -r"), as there was a bug in the 2.6.38 (< I think) series that broke the resume sequence.

If that isn't the problem, then try disconnecting devices (or unloading relevant modules) one by one, until it works.

Are you using the Nouveau driver? This has been known to have problems with suspend to ram, but I don't think it should be recovering journals if the video driver is the issue.
