Re: Test patch for sleep on Aluminium PowerBooks


My 15" PowerBook (5,2) (1.25Ghz) can't resume from sleep.
I have unstable Debian with 2.6.9 + alubuttons-patch +
I use pbbuttonsd 6.3-1 (no pmud because you can´t install both) and
cpudyn 1.01
I use XFS filesystems, and the last test with 2.6.9 + swsusp-patch make
my XFS root filesystem inconsisten (good bless xfs_repair :)
Right now I am using 2.6.9 WITHOUT swsusp support.
If I put "echo disk > /sys/power/state" the system hibernate, but if I
put "echo mem > /sys/power/state" nothing happens (I read that it is
suppose to make the system sleep).
If I press briefly the power buttons, then the systems apparently goes
to sleep and the white led starts changing his intensity like in MacOS
The problem is that I can't wake up the computer, no mater what I do
(press any key, move the mouse, press the power button briefly, stand up
on the power button) nothing works, the PB stays dead for about 2-3
minutes and then it reboots and boots up normally, like if I turned up.
I am missing something?
I have to configure something else?
There is no special configuration in the default pbbuttonsd debian
package for suspend-to-ram.
