Kernel Bug Tracker – Bug 1845
S3 resume: freeze -- Dell D600

Hardware Environment: Dell Latitude D600
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 !
Steps to reproduce:
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
Created attachment 3954 [details]
Problem does not seem to be video related
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 126.96.36.199) the random part of the bug has
disappeared. Resuming irremedably ends in a full freeze.
I attached the kernel .config for information.
still a problem with linux-2.6.10 or later?
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
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 188.8.131.52.
Same problem on Samsung P35 -- hard freeze on 2.6.12-rc4-mm.
Alex, please try the patch at:
S3 works find with Linux-2.6.13-rc6 on RHEL4-U1
on my Dell Latitude D600 running BIOS A14
