    Question Notebook HP dv7, sleep/hibernation random freezes

    Hello,

    I have already posted my problem replying other thread, I hope not to be breaking any forum rule if so, please tell me.

    When I sleep my notebook sometimes everything stays frozen and the only way to restart is the power button or sysreq alt B (I have this enabled on kernel)

    I made a simple forum search and I get to you post because this string "nm-dispatcher.action" that also fails just when my notebook hungs on sleep.

    Here I post two failure logs from the last two times my notebook freezed on sleep (I mean, the screen stays on, the fan runs at full speed, and the only restart way is with the powerbutton or sysreq+ALT+B)

    Please notice the time stamps, when it skips several hours is when I click on sleep and the notebook freezes and also the "nm-dispatcher.action" fails.

    I have a hunch that it is something to do with the wireless driver or the network applet... can you help me trace the problem?

    Here is my network hardware info, if there is any more info needed to get to a solution, please askme.

    Thanks,

    Thumbs up Re: Notebook HP dv7, sleep/hibernation random freezes [SOLVED]

    Well, I have been trying this kernel paramenter since a week now... acpi=oldboot and as far as I could test, my laptop has not freezed any more!!!

    I test sleeping and hibernating, also having virtualbox running or a movie playing, lot of programs opened... and no more freezing.

    I test it again, deleting the kernel parameter, and the problem started happening again... so it was not just lucky (anyway I will cross my fingers)

    Unhappy Re: Notebook HP dv7, sleep/hibernation random freezes [NOT SOLVED]

    not happy anymore. Well, the problem still persists... I thought it was solved but, it still happens sometimes (seems that happens less times with kernel option)

    /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/netcontrol_services' exited with error status 127
    (sometimes the error status number is 1 or 2...)

    This is the common error most of the times that the system hungs before sleeping or hibernating. I will try to research about it. If anyone have an idea, please tell me.

    Thanks,

    S.

    i spent a VERY few minutes looking though the hits of this search:

    http://www.google.com/search?q=linux...ion+dv7-4190us

    and see LOTS of hibernate/sleep problems with that machine...have you
    yet checked the HP web site and its fora to see if maybe there is a
    recall, or a newer BIOS which works?

    if your machine is fully updated to the manufacturer's specifications
    they i would consider not sleeping or hibernating until you have moved
    to a newer Linux kernel which may better support those features..

    ymmv

    Default Re: Notebook HP dv7, sleep/hibernation random freezes

    I have googled a lot! and tried lot of kernel options, suspend.conf options, ati and legacy video drivers...

    The google search you made, brings you the first 2 posts that are the ones I post :-p (hate this notebook, also heats a lot) the other results have little to do with the search, but I will keep trying looking for a solution. You know, its really a pain in the * that the notebook freezes when you sleep it or hibernate it. I get used to it and I can survive anyway til next kernel.

    Its seems to me that this is a common linux problem, it would be great to have an guide of things to check or test, but I know it depents too much on each hardware.

    As far as I learn, I think there is a problem with that /etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/netcontrol_services, I found some bug reports about it, but couldnt give it the time to research.

    Thanks for your response and help DenverD,

    PD: I have updated my bios time ago hoping to solve the problem, but didnt help...

    I have talked to HP Windows support, it is hell, once they told me that windows 7 was not compatible with the notebook, that this notebook only run windows 7 starter... So nothing to ask about linux to support, but I will follow your advise and look into the hp linux forum... List of Ubuntu Validated Laptops and Netbooks | hp + community and regional Linux distributions or hp + community and regional Linux distributions I thinks this is the one (but its very very new)

    Thanks,

    but it is not "a common linux problem" unless you consider the hardware
    makers inability (or refusal) to both meet acip standards and advise
    operating system makers exactly what should be used..

    and, i forgot to say earlier that there are _many_ acpi=[whatever]
    settings....and, it is a pure wonder what will work best for you

    here is all i can now find in my list--use them ONLY at your own
    peril...i do not know what they will do on my machine, or yours--read my
    caveat before trying any..

    acpi_osu=Linux
    acpi_use_timer_override
    acpi=noirq
    acpi=off
    acpi=on

    i'm sure there are more, but i can't find them just now..

    Hi
    That should be;
    Code:
    acpi_osi=Linux
    Was working on a DV7 last week fixing a window problem (wonky ati
    driver) alas only booted to a live cd to fix

    Another one is;
    Code:
    edd=off
    And just ensure acpi is installed, a quick check can be made;
    Code:
    acpi -V

    I am not aware of what the hardware vendors do, so you are right about it. I have intalled Opensuse 11.4 kde on a friend notebook Acer Aspire 5552-6829, and the first thing I test (because I pray that the problema was only on my notebook) was the sleep and hibernation features. As soon as I installed and updated (with standard repos) the new OS, when I click on "Sleep" it got freezed like on my DV7, I restarted... test it again, the same, always!

    I tried a few kernel options, I cant recall exactly, couldnt solve it... my friend that is not too linux friendly told me "that dont happend on windows..." laughting I tried to explain that things are different, and you need sometimes to tweak options. The next day... he installed again the dam# windows 7

    Another friend, that is more happy with last Kubuntu distro, has a Acer 17" dont remember the model exactly... I asked him if he had any problems when sleeping/hibernating, and he told me that from time to time it also freezes when sleeping so he prefers to shutdown always instead of sleep/hibernate.

    So... three notebooks tested presented problems with sleep/hibernate feature, but it can be just bad luck with the notebook hardware we choose.

    Hehehe thanks for the tips! I will try them... and if something explotes I wont blame you, promise!

    I tested acpi_osi=Linux, off,on, the ones on the grub help, noirq, I will keep looking for options, that could be a good guide if more users have problems with acpi, sleep / hibernation.
    I think I have a lot to try here

    Thanks Malcomlewis,

    This is the output of acpi -V
    Code:

    Cooling 8: Processor 0 of 10
    Cooling 9: Processor 0 of 10
    Anyway... could it be possible that the error messages I get each time the notebook freezes on sleeping gives a clue?
    I mean:
    1) itsalive nm-dispatcher.action Script '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/autofs' exited with error status 1.
    2) itsalive nm-dispatcher.action Script '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/autofs' exited with error status 1.
    3) itsalive nm-dispatcher.action Script '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/nfs' exited with error status 2.
    (I have all of them on a text file with some previous/next entries)

    These are just a few, but each time the notebook freezes the last log entry is about NetworkManager/nm-dispatcher

    Anyway... could it be possible that the error messages I get each time
    the notebook freezes on sleeping gives a clue?
    I mean:
    1) itsalive nm-dispatcher.action Script
    '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/autofs' exited with error status 1.
    2) itsalive nm-dispatcher.action Script
    '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/autofs' exited with error status 1.
    3) itsalive nm-dispatcher.action Script
    '/etc/NetworkManager/dispatcher.d/nfs' exited with error status 2.
    (I have all of them on a text file with some previous/next entries)

    These are just a few, but each time the notebook freezes the last log
    entry is about NetworkManager/nm-dispatcher

    Hi
    Just to confirm what version of openSUSE, arh and desktop? Also does it
    freeze with or without the power adapter connected?

    Are you hibernating or suspending? How much Ram and the swap space size?
