Can anyone help get suspend-to-ram on HP dv6645 working?

I’m running openSUSE 11.1 and would like to try solving the suspend issue.

The laptop suspends properly (well I think it does), but when I try to wake it all I get is the lights coming on, the hard drive and fan spin up, the screen flashes briefly (sometimes), and that’s it.

I’m left with a blank screen, no beeps, no HDD activity, nothing.

I have to manually power off.

I’m using the repo provided Nvidia driver.

s2ram -i shows this info:

This machine can be identified by:
sys_vendor = “Hewlett-Packard”
sys_product = "HP Pavilion dv6500 Notebook PC "
sys_version = “Rev 1”
bios_version = "F.31 "
See Suspend to RAM - openSUSE for details.

If you report a problem, please include the complete output above.
If you report success, please make sure you tested it from both X and
the text console and preferably without proprietary drivers.

As you can see it identifies my machine as a dv6500, not sure if that is a problem.

Many thanks :slight_smile:

I tried Kubuntu 9.04 and surprisingly suspend to RAM works perfectly under that.

I’m thinking it’s a kernel compile option that is different under Kubuntu, but I have no idea how to find that out.

If anyone has any ideas I’m happy to try them out :).

Is it down to the kernel version?

What does kubuntu 9.04 use?

I compiled my own 2.6.29.3 kernel, using the config from my old kernel, and suspend now works.

Although my b43 wireless doesn’t wake up properly, no big deal as I can simply restart it.

If anyone wants more info on how I did it, please ask :slight_smile:
