    12.04 -> 12.10 xfce4-power-manager hosed

    So I upgraded this morning and it broke xfce4-power-manager on my Thinkpad x100; it never suspended to disk, but now suspend to ram only works once, when I open the lid again the power manager crashes and I have to remember to relaunch it before the next time I close the lid. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there a fix or workaround?

    Ok, so I added a file "modules" to /etc/pm/config.d with the line

    SUSPEND_MODULES="thinkpad_acpi"

    which I did in response to a reading of this thread

    https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?id=144381&p=5

    So far it seems to have solved the problem; so far.

    Ok; that fix seems to have made the problem more sporadic, but it hasn't solved it! I'll keep looking but if anyone has any suggestions!

    Ok, so install acpi-support along with the previous addition of a modules file seems to have worked, so far.

    Nope; still not working every time. What a pain.
