ACPI suspend Dell 700m 2.6.9 kernel, wont wake up?
On my Dell 700m I am trying to make suspend work. The battery life is just
horrible, 2 hours flat, so suspend is a must.
I installed a 2.6.9 kernel. When I do a suspend to memory
echo "mem" > /sys/power/state
It goes into suspend and the power light starts to blink. That is perfect.
However, when I press any key, nothing happenes. The machine does not
respond. If I close the lid and open it back up, the power light becomes
solid (not blinking), but the machine does not come back alive, or at least I
cannot see anything on the display.
When I press the power button, while the machine is suspended, the light comes
solid and the machine starts to work hard. But, instead of coming back live,
it shuts down. Do I miss something ? Like a script for the "lid" event ?
Please educate me, as I dont know.
By the way, I also compiled a kernel with the swsusp2 patch, and it looked
good, but that was way to serious of a suspend for me, it actually shuts the
machine down. It must be great for a suspend when you are on a deserted
island, but all I need is a suspend for a few hours, so to memory is fine
