Description jazzdaq 2005-12-14 03:36:04 UTC
Most recent kernel where this bug did not occur: I believe that the problem did
not occur with 2.4 kernels.
Distribution: Fedora Core 2,3,4.
Hardware Environment: Dell Inspiron 8200, Dell Latitude C840
Software Environment:
Problem Description:

On my previous Inspiron 8200 (now defunct) and my current Latitude C840, power
management works fine as long as the external usb mouse is not used.  If an
external mouse is used, I have to unload the usbhid module in order to get
suspend/resume to work correctly.

If usbhid is not unloaded prior to suspend, the machine takes a lot longer to
shut down (about 20 seconds), and when started back up I just get a black screen.

All other common modules (PCMCIA, sound, floppy, cdrom, agpgart, ieee1394,
parport, etc.) seem to work without problems on suspend.

Steps to reproduce:

Compile the kernel with my .config file, boot up into X on any Inspiron 8200 or
Latitude C840, press the Suspend hot key.

------------ snippets from .config: -----------------------------
# Power management options (ACPI, APM)
# CONFIG_PM_DEBUG is not set

# ACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) Support
# CONFIG_ACPI is not set

# APM (Advanced Power Management) BIOS Support
# CONFIG_APM_RTC_IS_GMT is not set

Does 2.6.16-rc2 work properly for you?
Comment 2 jazzdaq 2006-02-10 06:18:59 UTC

On successful suspend, nothing usually beeps.  Here, I got a beep, and then
suspend.  Then, on resume:

Comment 3 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2006-03-06 10:30:43 UTC
But does the latest kernel work properly?
Comment 4 jazzdaq 2006-03-08 07:13:31 UTC
No, Greg.  You asked me to try 2.6.16-rc2, and my comment #2 is for 2.6.16-rc2.
Comment 5 Greg Kroah-Hartman 2006-03-08 10:14:01 UTC
Ok, suspend for USB is still flaky, we _really_ recommend that you unload
all of your USB modules before doing it (usually the distro scripts handle
that for you.)

If you unload usbhid before suspending, and then load it after resuming, does
it all work properly?

Please reopen this bug if:
- it is still present in kernel 2.6.17 and
- you can provide the requested information.
