Problem Description:
This bug is probably related to bugs 1415, 1661, 1801 and 1199 but I have no
idea as how to check. 
ACPI sleep to state S3 operates correctly (echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep) but
resuming (pressing the power button) freezes my laptop. The system powers up
apparently correctly (/var/log/acpid proves that) but then freezes without
display. /var/log/syslog does not show any events after wakeup. The unpredicible
part of it is that sometimes ACPI is able to catch the power button interrupt
and starts a clean shutdown (once in a while CTRL-ALT-DEL works also). The
system enters shutdown, but freezes in the process. Eventually only hard
resetting is always necessary.
FYI, S4 (suspend on disk) works like a charm !

Is the problem still there with latest 2.6 kernel?

If yes, can you make sure whether the problem is only with restore of the 
video (try connecting through network or serial after resume).

If it is only the video problem, 
- Please try the options in Documentation/power/video.txt
- Try the workaround in bug #3670

I don't believe it is a simple failure of reactivating video.

Impossible to reconnect over ssh to  the box after resume. Since a few kernel
releases (I'm currently using the random part of the bug has
disappeared. Resuming irremedably ends in a full freeze.

I attached the kernel .config for information.

Comment 3 Len Brown 2005-01-03 14:21:45 UTC
still a problem with linux-2.6.10 or later?
Comment 4 Bart Lamiroy 2005-01-04 09:16:19 UTC
Yes ... upon your request, I specially retrieved the 2.6.10 kernel. Problem stil
remains. I even compiled the kernel with debug options, but I did't get much out
of it.

Did I miss something (RTFM) by simply doing

echo 3 > /proc/acpi/sleep

I'd apreciate hints on how to provide more detailed information.

I have this problem as well. I'm using a Dell Inspiron 600m. S1 and S4 work but
S3 hangs my machine upon resume (suspend works correctly). I cannot access it
over the network and a hard reset is required. I've confirmed this with

Same problem on Samsung P35 -- hard freeze on 2.6.12-rc4-mm.

S3 works find with Linux-2.6.13-rc6 on RHEL4-U1
on my Dell Latitude D600 running BIOS A14
