Thread: Disk Sleep Hang

  1. #1

    Default Disk Sleep Hang

    My machine locks up (hangs) regularly. So I've left the System Activity monitor open on the desktop to find out what is causing the issue.

    It seems that there are a number of processes that enter "Disk Sleep".

    Among them are the following.

    hald-addon-stor
    kjournald
    ata/0

    Often there are others that go into "Disk Sleep".

    The rest of the processes run normally. For instance my sound will continue to run in the background.

    I will lose all input (mouse, keyboard) control. Sometimes keystrokes and mouse clicks will be registered, but not actioned until the hang is gone.

    Am running:

    OS Linux: 2.6.27.7-9-default i686
    openSUSE: openSUSE 11.1 (i586)
    KDE: 4.1.96 (KDE 4.1.96 (KDE 4.2 RC1)) "release 78.2"
    Video: 2.1.2 NVIDIA 180.22

    Hardware:
    Acer Aspire 9420
    Intel(R) Core(TM)2 CPU T5500 @ 1.66GHz
    2.0 GB RAM.


    Help much appreciated as this really starting to bug me.

    The problem seems to be fixed thankfully.

    I upgraded to the latest version of Amarok. There were a number of KDE dependencies that had to be upgraded as well.

    Since then I haven't experienced the problem described above. I have watched the System Activity (process) monitor and have not seen the the same problems with kjournald or other processes.

    So I can only assume it was a KDE issue.

    hal got an update, that might have fixed it. The desktop environment ought not to be able to hang any kernel processes.

    You're probably right about the update. There were many updates required. Perhaps there was a kernel update amongst them. I'm happy, all is good now. I have usable Linux laptop now!

    Sad to say, I have the same problem again, and even worse than before...

    ...and this follows another update...



    I wish they'd stop breaking things.

    Suggestions anyone?

    Same problem here. I've installed the 64-bit of 11.1 and after about 10 minutes the system hangs. So i've tried with installing the 32-bit and i have the same problem again.

    I've disabled the settings of powersavings and this seems to help.
