SUSE 11.3 Only 1st time after boot OK: hibernate + suspend (s2ram s2disk)

Hi - this is a final hopeful call for some help :slight_smile:

pm-hibernate and pm-suspend only work the first time after booting into runlevel 5.

This behavior is reproducable.

pm-hibernate starts out correctly but then hangs the system bevore it gets to save the image from memory to disk. The computer locks up and does not power down.

pm-suspend: on wake up there is no signal on the screen (pm-suspend called from X environment or text terminal shows same result).

I spent some time reading information on s2ram s2disk and added the follwing options:

S2RAM_OPTS="-f" in
/etc/pm/config.d/00meine.config
(display adapter is GForce4 nvidia with the closed source nvidia driver for accel)

splash = n in
/etc/suspend.conf - to get some more information during the suspend / hibernate.

Any ideas to get pm-hibernate / pm-suspend to work more than one time after boot???

Thank you for your contributions!!!

Hibernate would be a great start for daily work and for energy saving.

PS:
In runlevel 3 pm-hibernate works various times from a text terminal.

Under the same condition pm-suspend leads to a scrambled text terminal after resuming (some help on this: using vga=normal in Grub).

The computer continues to work - though without visual aid - when the text terminal is scarambled. For example Runlevel 5 can be called blindly from the text terminal.

Try in runlevel 3.

same thing happened to me while on openSUSE 11.3. i didn’t do any research
since the main board was flaky anyway, so i assumed that to be the reason.
now, with a new MB & 11.4, suspend to RAM or disk works as expected,
repeatedly. is upgrading an option for you?

Thank you for your suggestion. I tried this … in runlevel 3 … and it basically works unlimited times - though pm-suspend shows some side affects:

Any idea what this could lead to … to get the problem solved for runlevel 5?

Thanks!

What could the benefit of openSUSE 11.4 be to fix this problem with respect to pm-utils (s2ram / s2disk)?

(Everything else I have working fine with 11.3).

Ideas?

sorry, no.

if everything else works fine, and you’re not planning to upgrade to 11.4
any time soon – why should you if (almost) everything works – you’ll
have to figure out how to solve this on 11.3. i remember different threads
in these forums, perhaps also mailing lists, dealing with this.

for me it just started working at 11.4, but that might not be the case for
you.

To learn if video graphics is the problem.

OK … video graphics seem to be the problem (articles on nvidia recommend using the “-f” option - which I am doing - and seeing to it that there is no AGP interfering - except the driver’s => I took care of this and checked).

Interesting enough there is a failure only the second time I use pm-suspend / pm-hibernate after a reboot .

Any further ideas to find a possible fix ???

Thanks,

DH

Any ideas what path to go down?

In my case the opensource driver crashes the machine (11.2), and the closed
source one works fine.
