    Re: Laptop does not suspend

    For hibernating, make sure that your Ubuntu swap partition is equal in size to your RAM (I usually set mine to 1MB more than my RAM).

    I know your question is about suspending, but I've had problems with suspension before and making sure the swap partition was large enough solved it for me. A swap of 2G should be more than enough for suspending unless you have a very large amount of RAM.

    Code:
    button/lid LID0 00000080 00000001
    button/lid LID0 00000080 00000002
    What's the delay?
    That is odd. Can you confirm whether this delay happens all the time (is repeatable)?

    Also, have you tried booting previous kernels to see if the problem is specific to this kernel?

    I just repeated that, yes it happened again. By the way there is something i forgot to mention. When i drag my mouse to the upper left corner of the screen, the gnome activities panel opens up. There i see my desktop background image corrupted. Nothing else, just the background image is corrupted. Ok now i will try another kernel

    1. Does this delay happen every time you close and open the lid?

    2. Can you close lid, wait 5 seconds, open lid then post back /var/log/pm-suspend.log and /var/log/syslog? Use these commands and post back the link that is generated:
    Code:
    pastebinit /var/log/pm-suspend.log
    pastebinit /var/log/syslog
    I want to see if there is anything in your log files.

    Re: Laptop does not suspend

    Toz, thank you for giving time, i appreciate your help. My ubuntu doesn't recognize it when i close the lid at all. Suspend only works with "acpi_listen" command and with a couple of minutes delay. Also works only manually. Also everything works in my windows os. Here is the generated links:

    Re: Laptop does not suspend

    Strange things happen here. Now i just did what you asked, closed lid and waited and opened and installed pastebinit, ran the commands you told me to, wrtitten a message and it suddenly decided to suspend after so long time (around 3-4 minutes maybe much later)

    I don't see anything wrong or of interest in your log files. Do you have some acpi-related settings in your bios? Perhaps something about a timer?
