Bug#609692: linux-image-2.6-686: Thinkpad T60 cannot suspend nor hibernate any more
As the subject explains, ever since my last reboot yesterday, I can't suspend
nor hibernate my T60, which is very inconvenient.
More specifically, when I try to suspend, the machine goes to sleep OK, but the
resume fails (the sleep-led is turned off, the CDROM makes the usual noise, and
then the machine just freezes with no sign of life (keyboard unresponsive,
For hibernate, the problem happens earlier: the machine never gets to shutdown.
Since the text-console is "all black" I can't see what it says.
I've seen this kind of problem in the 2.5.36-trunk-686 and 2.6.37-trunk-686
kernels (my SSD is impatiently waiting for them, since I use LVM), but
2.6.32-5-686 was rock solid until today.
I'm not sure if the 2.6.32-5-686 package has changed since last time I booted
it and was able to suspend (which was soon after 2.6.36-trunk-686 was uploaded
to experimental), and I suspect the problem may have to do with changes in X11
as well (mostly unsubstantiated gut-feeling, but also because I noticed when
logging-in that the log-in sequence has changed and now flashes the screen and
if the mode was re-set).
I understand this is not much data to work with, but I can't remember which
kind of data can be useful to track down this kind of problem.
