as far as i have understood key to successful suspend to ram story is: powermanager, kernel and bios. just right combination of these three elements will give you full joy of laptop usefulness.
is this true?..if it is why tha F*** suspend works under ubuntu 8.04 and not under suse 11???
really…please someone explane me…i’m about through this laptop up against the wall…i’m no joking…
it’s whitelisted in s2ram and it’s still don work…
i’ve read that page thoroughly before, and followed every step on it. still no go.
this is s2ram output:
Machine matched entry 559:
sys_vendor = 'TOSHIBA'
sys_product = 'Satellite A100'
sys_version = ''
bios_version = ''
Fixes: 0x3 S3_BIOS S3_MODE
This machine can be identified by:
sys_vendor = "TOSHIBA"
sys_product = "Satellite A100"
sys_version = "PSAA9E-0QG049DU"
bios_version = "6.00 "

What parameter did you use under ubuntu ? (under /etc/acpi-support/suspend (or "sleep).
i have no idea, i just set it in powermanager to suspend to ram when lid is closed and that’s it. closed my lid, it went to sleep and when i opened it i continued my work.
in suse case it goes to sleep, but never wakes up (keyboard is dead).
and about wifi drivers i assume there only one linux drivers for intel wifi modules so i guess drivers can’t be the reason. and i can’t go back and check it anyway, my laptop is suse only. before RC1 i had ubuntu, but when RC1 came out i came back to my fav distro.
and about parameters - just about all of them from s2ram suse page.
i have already emailed s2ram developers. but i guess making bug report would get quicker response.
and i’m sorry but i think it not possible to attach files here, and i can’t just copy/paste it - this text spreads on 43 pages - it’s just antisocial to do so.
i will try to submit the bug and upload this file on bugzilla, then i post a link to that so you could take a look at it.
one more thing can u describe what really happens when u try to s2ram for example does the system go off, what happens when u turn it on, etc and u did do this a root user right, add this to your bug report.
I suffer from the same problem like kartveli. I own Toshiba A200 model and the simptoms are the same as kartveli described. It goes in suspend normally, but on wake up computer hangs. I tried all combinations described on suse page.
The hard drive LED becomes active but the 5th LED(Multiple Digital Media Card Slot Access LED) never becoms active, normaly on resume this LED does become active.
I tried on openSuse 10.3 and 11.0(LIVE) and either case the problem is same. I also tried with Fedora Core 9 (LIVE) and suspend works superbly.
