Re: can't restore from suspend

So what I thought was a sucessful suspend was just a screen saver. I don't
understand how acpid works, but there must be a way to:
        a) figure out how to restore the laptop from a suspended state
        b) turn off suspend
I looked through the man pages for acpid and I'm guessing that suspend is
an "event", but I don't understand how to manipulate it.

Does anyone know of a resource that explains how to do (a) or (b)?

First try to find out WHY the machine suspends. If you find that out, then you can start to explore why the machine doesn't restore/wake up. My tip is for you to check out swsusp. That gives you a way to hibernate/wake up in a controlled way. There are perhaps other ways, but I managed to get my laptop hibernate and wake up as expected with swsusp. I don't remember the web page exactly, but try swsusp.sourceforge.net. Swsusp exists as a deb package as well if I don't remember wrong.

Good luck.
