Thread: suspend to ram

  1. #1

    Default suspend to ram

    My laptop won't wake from sleep. I hit the powerbutton and it'll blink a few more times, turn green and the keys will light up but the screen stays black.

    Running sony vaio s with windows 7 and 11.4 duelboot. I really need it to be able to suspend and wake because I'll be taking it to college in the fall.

    Default Re: suspend to ram

    I tried but i can't get it to work right. I have "AMD Radeon HD 6630M (1GB VRAM) hybrid graphics with intel wireless display" (exactly how it says it on my order form) maybe the software isn't new enough to cover it? It said the latest version it had been sucessfully tested on was 11.3.
    Thanks for pointing me in the right direction. I'm going to keep fiddling around with it and might post something in the hardware forum.

    Default Re: suspend to ram

    All my Laptops have onboard intel graphics and all work perfectly

    My box with a nvidia card does not and never has worked, with any distro. It's on all day anyway and off at night mostly.

    Default I too have the graphics card troubles

    Here's my problems:

    1. I'm very new to Linux and honestly everything on computers except word, games internet, etc. (I think problem 1 will resolve itself over time)

    2. My computer won't wake from suspend to ram. I've read the suspend to RAM page on the wiki and although its all greek to me I'm pretty sure I tried what it suggests correctly and it didn't work. I do know my laptop gets hung up inside the BIOS (the screen won't pop up and the capslock doesn't register on and off) but I don't know what BIOS is.

    I'm running 11.4 64 bit with a "AMD Radeon HD 6630M (1GB VRAM) hybrid graphics with intel wireless display" (how its listed on the order form. I don't know if that's just the full description or a variation of the HD 6630M)

    If anyone knows a solution or can point me in the right direction I'd be eternally grateful.

    Hi WhatsWithGravity! Welcome to the Linux world...
    I'm afraid, you'll have to provide some more information.

    1: Which Wiki page ? I have only found an outdated german page about suspend to RAM.

    2: What exactly does not work? Does your computer freeze completely if you enter the BIOS setup or where exactly does this happen? A freeze during BIOS setup is not a good sign.

    To get an idea about what is failing, gave a look at the /var/log/pm-suspend.log file.

    Code:
    cat /var/log/pm-suspend.log
    Post it here if you need help interpreting.

    Even though it doesn't wake, maybe its not suspending properly. You can use s2ram with various options to see if any cause proper suspend. (To get available options, type 's2ram -h').

    You need to be root first

    Code:
    su -
    then one of these (get the other options with -h switch)

    Code:
    s2ram -f
    Code:
    s2ram -f --vbe_save
    Does it resume from any of these (or other options) ok?

    Thanks good to be here!
    Here's the site: SDB:Suspend to RAM - openSUSE. As for BIOS I really don't know whats going on I just read on there that if when you try to wake from sleep the screen doesn't come back on you should try pressing capslock to see if the LED light responds and it doesn't.

    and Deano, here's the output of that file. I do need help interpreting haha.

    Thanks for the help guys its really appreciated. I was really looking forward to escaping windows and this has been bumming me out.

    Default Re: I too have the graphics card troubles

    It looks like you're trying to hibernate (suspending to disk rather than suspending to ram) from examining your log. Is that what you intended?

    Edit: Made a mistake with the log output interpretation. Will await clarification from OP.

    Ya I thought the output was odd but I promise I'm trying to put it to sleep not hibernate.
    Was that the right log file?
