When I try to suspend the computer, it does go off, but when I try to come back from suspension, I just get a full-black screen: There, nothing works (keyboard, mouse, soft-poweroff), and I’m forced to do a full poweroff by pressing the button for three seconds, then boot the system again.
More: When I try to close the desktop session (through the same Xfce panel plugin that I used to suspend --a tooltip says it’s linked to the process xfsm-logout-plugin-5), I get to a black screen with some artifacts and a big nVidia logo. I can move the mouse for some seconds (but no right click), then it freezes. No key combination works whatsoever (though there seems to be some “internal activity”), and the only thing I can do is a soft push of the power-off button, which starts the normal shutdown process (“normal” except for the fact that any key press, after shutdown, makes the machine reboot – a full reboot, with grub, login and all).
I tried starting a session in IceWM, but the “close session” action there had the same results, so I’m not sure if it has something to do with Xfce or not.
I’m using OpenSUSE 12.1 and Xfce 4.8. Some hardware details:
CPU: AMD AThlon XP 2800+
Motherboard: ASUSTeK A7N8X-VM
GPU: nVidia GeForce4 MX Integrated
Some /etc/sysconfig settings are:
I’m using the nVidia graphics driver for GeForce4 GPUs (x11-video-nvidia).
Normally I don’t use suspension, or close the session that way, so it’s not a big problem, but of course I’d like those features to work, and understand a bit better the process, so I’d appreciate any help, or hints about what logs to look at, etc.
This is my first real post here, you’ll find that my nickname is not ironic!
