I'm seeing the exact same behavior on my laptop. Using 3 instead of 1 to echo to /proc/acpi/sleep - same thing. Using 5 does nothing.On Thu, 17 Jun 2004 14:34:34 -0400 Aaron Bennett <[email protected]> wrote:
I'm going crazy trying to find a real way to make a Dell Latitude D600 suspend with FC2 and acpi...

And then X comes back up as if nothing has happened! I tried disabling DRI and even setting the driver to vesa (neither of which option I like) and it still happens the same way.
I've found references to a myserious "make x and dri not suck with
radeon" patch, but I can't seem to find it. I'm hoping to not have to
roll my own kernel because this is for a laptop distribution project --
it's going to find it's way onto ~150 laptops so I'm trying not to have
maintain my own kernel rpms.
Don't have any specific experience with your hardware but you could try these two things:
1. Try values of 3 and 5 instead of 1 to echo to /proc/acpi/sleep "1" isn't meant to suspend. 2. Switch to a text console before you use the echo 3. There have been some problems solved by setting the swappiness value to 100 before trying to suspend: echo 100 > /proc/sys/vm/swappiness
Please help before I get more keyprint on my forehead from slamming it against the keyboard.
Would love to see a solution to this.
