Re: APM suspend/resume problem on Toshiba Satellite 2800DVD-C302
"apm --suspend" works fine on my (ancient) Satellite110CS with
kernel 2.2.17 and
# CONFIG_APM_IGNORE_USER_SUSPEND is not set
# CONFIG_APM_IGNORE_SUSPEND_BOUNCE is not set
# CONFIG_APM_ALLOW_INTS is not set
# CONFIG_APM_REAL_MODE_POWER_OFF is not set
# CONFIG_TOSHIBA is not set
(Don't ask why CONFIG_TOSHIBA is not set: clearly I wasn't very awake when
I last configured...)
Only I have to exit my X session before suspending, o'wise it'll come up
at another resolution and it would be back to normal only after
So, I have no clue to why it isn't working on your model, but I just
wanted to point you to http://newsletter.toshiba-tro.de/main/index.html
and http://linux.toshiba-dme.co.jp/linux/ where you may find info
for your model or browse the toshiba-linux mailing list logs)
